Request your V5C

We hold a V5C (log book) for every Motability Scheme vehicle.

You might need to show a copy of your V5C for things like parking permits or getting a number plate replaced. 

The easiest way to ask for a copy of your V5C and check all your information is correct is in your online account.

If you cannot do this you can complete our form instead.

We’ll aim to send you a PDF of your V5C, from the DVLA View Vehicle Record (VVR) service, within three working days.

Look for an email from ‘Postmaster’. It’ll say ‘Motability Operations Ltd sent you a secure message’.

Your registration certificate should show your current name and address. Please let us know if these have changed.

We cannot give you a V5C for an ex-Scheme vehicle. If you’re not a Scheme customer, you can ask the DVLA for a replacement.
