What if I don't have my registration document, the V5c?

If you do not have the vehicle registration document (V5c) and your vehicle goes through to auction, a £25 fee will be taken from whatever the vehicle makes at auction. However, if you do not have the vehicle registration document (V5c) and the vehicle goes through to scrap, there will be no fee taken from the vehicle's profits. You can inform the DVLA that you are no longer the owner of the vehicle by writing them a letter informing them what you are doing with the vehicle, or alternatively you can go to the DVLA's website and fill in the details online.
