When you apply for a new fixed permit, you need to provide documents to show that you own the vehicle. The documents must show your full name.
If you are the owner of the vehicle, please provide all pages of the DVLA Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5C). If you can’t provide the V5C, but have the bill of sale or insurance documents confirming the make, model and vehicle registration, we can issue a 3 month permit only. If after the 3 months you still cannot provide the V5C, your application to renew the permit will be rejected.
If the vehicle is owned by someone else but you are the keeper of the vehicle, you must provide:
- All pages of the DVLA Vehicle Registration Certificate V5C.
- Your insurance certificate and policy schedule showing your name, address and vehicle registration.
If you are hiring the vehicle, please provide the hire contract or lease agreement showing your name and the vehicle registration number.
If you are applying for a fixed permit for a company vehicle, please provide a letter from your employer that:
- Is on the company’s official letter headed stationery.
- Is dated within the last month.
- Confirms that the vehicle is owned/leased by the company and that you are the sole keeper and user.
- Is signed by the company secretary or someone with similar authority. You cannot sign this letter yourself.
You do not need to provide proof that you own the vehicle if you are applying for a flexible permit, or to renew a fixed permit for the same vehicle.
