The Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA) has announced the launch of a new online service for updating essential details in V5C logbooks.  

The DVLA received approximately 1.4 million applications to change address details by post last year and their processing time averaged six weeks. A statement by the DVLA announcing the launch of the new digital service noted that it would cut processing time to a more efficient five days instead.  

The new service can be used to inform the DVLA of an address change in approximately two minutes. All that is required to use it is the registration number of the vehicle, the logbook reference number and the appropriate postcode.  

Commenting, DVLA Chief Executive Julie Lennard said: “We’re launching this service at a time when online services are becoming even more vital to help people get back on the road. This new online service is quicker and easier than sending your logbook to the DVLA so, if you’ve just moved home, try the service and see how simple it is.”
