Replacing Lost or Damaged MOT Certificates

If you have lost or damaged your MOT certificate, you can obtain a duplicate from any MOT Testing Station.
You’ll need to provide the vehicle registration mark and either the original MOT test number or document reference number, shown on the V5C registration certificate issued by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.

UnLicenced or SORN Vehicles

When SORN has been declared for a vehicle the registered keeper must ensure that it will not be used or kept on a public road until a new licence has been taken out. The declaration will be valid for 12 months unless the vehicle is re-licensed, sold, permanently exported or scrapped.
Remember you should not declare SORN if the vehicle has been sold, permanently exported or scrapped.
When you have completed the declaration, a SORN confirmation letter will be sent to the registered keeper’s address currently held by DVLA and should arrive in the post within 4 weeks.

What should you do if you haven’t received your tax disc?

You have a grace period of five days from when your current tax disc expires to the time when your new tax disc must be displayed.

We offer a call connection service, which means you are dialling one of our 09 phone numbers that will appear on your bill, and not the number of the government organisation. This number connects you through to the government department you wish to speak to.

If you find yourself in a queue or disconnected for any reason please call back on the number announced on your call. Alternatively, the contact number can be found on the required organisations website. We are not associated, nor affiliated with any government organisation, but act simply as a cost effective call connection service.
