information on the history of your car from DVLA
the V8 Register for information about previous owners for his MGBGTV8, David Worthington
made an application to DVLA under their V888 procedure. Here he describes how
it works, what it costs and what information he received.
I made a request
to the DVLA by completing their V888 form and enclosing the £5 fee.
I was delighted by their response - I received more than 30 A4 pages which set
out a 'full keeper history details as requested according to our records'. The
pages I received are photocopies of the registration documents and any notifications
of changes or registered keeper over the years. With that information it has enabled
me to generate a complete history of the car with the dates of transfer of keepers.
The DVLA is keen to stress that the registration document is not proof of ownership.
I also have a couple of mileages recorded when the keeper changed. As you might
expect, I have found it
very interesting. I was pleasantly surprised by the efficiency of DVLA and the
comprehensive nature of their reply. It also strikes me as good value for the
fee of £5. See
