DVLA launches online duplicate logbook service
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has launched a new service that is intended to drastically cut the amount of time it takes to get a duplicate V5C logbook.
Designed to help people whose logbooks have been lost or damaged, the new online service for arranging a replacement is intended to cut the turnaround time of requests from up to six weeks to five days. The cost for either form of the service will remain at £25.
The DVLA issues approximately 500,000 replacement V5C logbooks each year. A similar service allowing people to change their listed address in their logbook online instead of by post which was launched earlier this year has already been used more than 300,000 times.
