Before buying any car, van, or motorbike in the UK, you would want to carry out its cosmetic, sound, and engine checks. But how would you know about the vehicle’s history? Is it stolen, written off, or has an inconsistent mileage or outstanding finance? Of course, you cannot find these details on your own unless you take an HPI Checks or its best alternative car check.
The V5C vehicle registration certificate, also known as logbook or V5 form, is a document released by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to the registered keeper of a car. It contains the proof of ownership and the particular information of a vehicle, such as the date of first registration, the previous registered keeper, and the car model, tax class, engine size, VIN/Chassis/Frame number, and the colour. V5C logbook is used to notify the DVLA about the change of ownership, an alteration of name and address, or after the car customization, scrapped, or written-off.
