You can't do it by phone. What do the instructions say in the letter under "no longer the owner" - I think you have to write them a letter stating when you sold it.

When you tell 'em you flogged the motor - they send you a letter to confirm you are no longer the registered keeper.

You have to wait a couple of weeks for the letter to be received.

Could simply be that they haven't updated their records yet.

The person who bought it won't be able to tax it - he is not the registered keeper.

Write a letter to the DVLA - tell 'em you are no longer the owner - and that you've told them - the real owner will get things moving as his tax will be running out at the end of the month.

Moral of the story - keep copies of all correspondence with the DVLA - I copied my driving licence when I sent it off for the 3 points to be added - I don't trust them.

DVLA 0300 790 6802 thats off section 12 of the V5 and for use in the event you do not get a letter from them when you traded the car you should have sent off section 9 the yellow part when you pxd it hope that helps

tax reminders are printed automatically a long time before being sent out also automatically the system will catch up itself no need to worry or try to call them

As long as you sent the v5 away correctly when the car was sold you will no longer be the recorded keeper it just takes time to catch up I waited 3 months recently for a v5 but the recorded date of transfer was when I bought it.

Considering your other post about the dodgy garage - you sent the slip off, right?

Ha your going to call me an idiot he told me he had to keep the hole log book and his secretary posts off section 9 and i dont know much about log books so i assumed it just worked differently with trading in to selling privately never done it before. However i spoke to dvla today they told me send a letter with reg date and details of garage and they send him the v5. Ive already sent letter this afternoon so its all sorted now thanks.
Why would he want to not send it off then ? Maybe so no new owner added on ?
