can anyone tell me how to get a vin number from only having a reg number so i can write it on a v62 form to apply for a v5 ? problem is i dont know the vin number but it needs to be on the form its not in the normal spots i think due to welding
was just looking a a mk1 ive seen for sale i thought it was on a ally tag on the step ? my mk2 is but its had new steps and sills so no tag its a unfinished project in boxes been sat for a few years now so no v5 and i know dvla wont issue a v5 if i dont put the vin number down
You are in a proper sticky situation there I'm afraid. A vehicle where it sounds like the VIN has been removed, no ID plates, no documentation, and just a registration that could be from anywhere. The DVLA are, as you've found, wary of processing these types of application due to potential theft/fraud/ringing.
Some years ago you could get the VIN when doing a comprehensive vehicle check but I think the rules changed so that you only get the VIN confirmation after you've matched what you're entering against DVLA records. Might be worth a try though. If it's been off the road some time expect them to ask for it to be checked.
I once picked up a mk3 Cortina from a deceased's estate. Full car, mostly in bits, most of the way through a restoration, but no documentation or number plate. Applying for a V5 using the stamp on the inner wing was a nightmare because it was mostly unreadable. After 3 failed attempts and 3 cheques I gave up and sold it on, and there was a big thread on the MTOC about it. I believe I saw it not long ago but it was allegedly a top of the range GXL model.
