Can I avoid a late VRT payment fee?

Hi there,

I recently bought a new car at a British auction without V5c. Had to send a V62 form and pay £25 for new logbook. Due to COVID it has taken DVLA longer than usual to reissue the logbook. If I present the proof such as the date the last logbook has been issued, will I avoid paying late VRT payment?

Hi Anna,

You should be able to. Gather up all the documentation and if possible get a written confirmation from the DVLA confirming the re-issue of the V5 and the dates it was done on. Then present all that and you should be let off. Fingers crossed.
