Bought a car on auction in UK without v5

Bought a car on auction in UK without v5, DVLA used to send cert of permanent export which was enough to register the car here. They stopped doing that on 14th of Jan 2019. So if the car has neither v5 nor the cert, is there any way to vrt it?
Can apply for v5 replacement giving them my friend's uk address? Or if the car is in ireland already it won't work?

Don't buy a car without a V5C!

especially if that's really true about not sending export certs any more.

How do you know they owned it if you didn't see the V5 ??

Even if you did see it, you still need it with you. The amount of people who let the seller 'send it to the DVLC first' boggles : does no-one read anything anymore? It actually says it on it.

And the sellers are equally uninformed.

buying and selling for last few years. most of the cars from auctions do not have v5 as they are destroyed by insurance companies. up to 14.01.19 you could get cert of export.
now - you can apply for replacement v5 but you need uk address.
i was wondering if anybody has done it already or if there is any other way to register it here?

You still don't know they owned it. The name on the V5C is the "keeper", the one they send the fines to, not necessarily the legal owner, which could be a finance co or other.

Either way, the current procedure is what it is. Either you work with that, or give up.

There are ways of registering an unregistered vehicle, but the procedure is a complete ball-ache compared to just have a vehicle registration certificate from another country to hand.

True, but importing aside, a car without paperwork is...........a paperweight. Or boat anchor.

They won't send a new one out to an Irish address. If you contact them, they might send the old one to you, if they can trace it. You are probably looking at penalties for late VRT payment as I doubt it's a quick process. I know of no other way to do it as they no longer send out Certs of Export.

Swansea say it is up to the country the car is exported to . to get a new book.. they obviously never dealt with vrt office here ,, An Ni or Gb Address is most likely an easy way to go but takes up to 6 weeks costs 25 stg on dvla web site .
