I believe there is a process for obtaining a V5 when the original has been lost. Have a look on the DVLA website or FBHVC website there should be some guidance there.

Assuming it had been on the DVLA computer then there won't be a problem. To start you need to check the Government website and if you find it there then all you need to do is apply for the new V5C in your name. They will write to the last owner that they have recorded to make sure it isn't stolen and fairly quickly you should receive a new registration V5C.

Assuming nothing has changed, DVLA register the keeper and not the legal owner. They may attempt to contact the last registered keeper but will take a lack of response as confirmation that they can reissue the V5 to the new applicant.  They will request various information and may still make a physical check?

This cost me a classic motorcycle when I naively assumed that the police and DVLA databases were interlinked and DVLA happily issued a V5 to the thief/receiver - although this was a couple of decades ago.

If the vehicle is not on the DVLA database then itís a whole new ball game and you need to seek further advice from the club registrations officer.

 Thanks for all your fast replies . Contacting dvla is hopeless All you get is recorded messages.
Next problem is where to store it. Might have to part with the minerva.Not many with a pto hole. Or the 80"
Just can't resist

So how did you get on with the Government website? That doesn't give recorded messages and it is working when I try it. If you are getting a message to say that your number isn't on their computer then you may have trouble, but I suspect that you haven't actually tried it.

well if you ring the following numbers that I rang you will hear for yourself the options you have when you make your choice and end up just getting basic recorded messages 03007906802

 I resent your assertion that I am a liar. Someone with common decency would not publically try to cast such an unfounded accusation. I think I can  managed through life without any more help from you. So kindly refrain from reading or commenting on my posts. There are a lot of Trolls out there. I don't see they serve any purpose on this excellent club site

Not sure this was called for. There was no assertion that you had lied more that you had not stated whether you had  tried the action suggested. If there is any trolling it appears to be coming from yourself. Please calm down.

You do not deserve any more help from the club members.
If you want to get your landrover registered with the DVLA you need the co operation of the club to obtain it. 
An apology from you would be a good start.

On reflection I understand I have misread the meaning behind Tom c's post and the situation.

I therefore regret my over reaction. and apologize to Tom. 

If I had not read the meaning of Tom 's post wrongly I would not have seen it as an affront to the validity of my statement. I am not fond of Humble pie but on this occasion I have to accept a large slice and apologize.
Kind regards

Best advice I can give you is to spend a bit of cash and join the club then speak to Mick Burn the VRO, the cost of membership is peanuts compared with what it can cost if you get it wrong.

I am biased but I am VRO for the S2 club and spend a lot of time trying to unpick the chaos caused by getting it wrong.

Apology accepted, but I still suspect that you have not tried putting your registration number into this website as I suggested.


https://www.vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/

which will immediately tell you whether your vehicle is on their computer. If it comes up as recognised then you have no need to involve Mick Burn as you just need to apply for a new V5C. If it tells you that the vehicle is not on the  computer then you need Mick Burn. No telephones, waits or recorded messages are involved.

473XUR (seen in photo above) shows as Austin Healey on DVLA site. Taxed, too.

If it is shown as SORN then it should have a registered keeper on the DVLA database and a V5. I believe in the case of a lost V5 you will need a V62 see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/application-for-a-vehicle-registration-certificate
Other options are listed here https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-log-book

Fingers crossed that you have the correct chassis number as this is the one thing that DVLA will insist on you providing.

I had an ultimately unsuccessful battle to get a replacement for a MF135 tractor which a club  Iím in wanted to use legally on road on very rare occasions after 30 odd years of use on our private site - no postcode so it had to be registered to a memberís home address. Over the years, we had no idea where the V5 had gone or which, probably deceased, member had registered it. There was no sign of a chassis number ever having been applied (not unusual apparently) and after a police inspection to confirm this we had to get a new VIN issued and a Q plate - luckily with a tractor this didnít come with all the MOT/new vehicle headaches that would apply to a car.

Afternoon bods,
That is the fastest Austin Healey 3000 Minerva on the planet.....473XUR..

Why why you may ask?

Between Jan 2010 and Jan 2011 it travelled forwards 80,000 miles  ..according go its mot history.....39k to 119k.
Then travelled backwards 79.5k miles...a total distance of 159,500 miles in 2 years..

Whoosh....and I have a sign on my 1949 states " please pass"

473xur probably is an Austin Healey. When I bought this Minerva
473xur was on the vehicle and the v5 stated 463xur There were 2 sets of plates in the vehicle. 473xur was recorded as never issued when I bought it so the Healey is probably a recent import.
This is a very early ckd with a Landrover chassis and bulkhead.
Minervas, tend to be in very good condition without suffering electrolytic  corrosion This one was a recce vehicle with a tall tripod aerial mast.. Someone on here suggested that as it was
painted yellow, then red, and having an unusual tow hitch  deployment to Airport duties moving Helicopters or small planes around may have been it's function at one time.

Which  shows as 463XUR  so that should be the number on the vehicle, I would just change it rather than open a can of worms if you involve the DVLA

As the minerva has been red and yellow it may be a veteran of the Belgian army's psychedelic Minerva dance ( see Antarmike's posting last october)
