Recently lost my brother he was a taxi driver.I am his next of kin.

He did not use his private car much and so applied for what i believe is called sworn so he did not need to tax his car and parked it on private land with owners consent.

I have a use for the car and so i want to move the car register it in my name tax it and use it myself.

How do i do this .Any help appreciated.

Have you the V5 also known as logbook or registration certificate?

Ok, if you have the V5 fill out new keeper section which is on the inside cover with all your details. At the bottom you will have to sign as a purchaser and on behalf of the seller. Detatch the green slip (V5C/2) which is marked as the New keepers suppliment, you keep that and send the rest off to DVLA Swansea SA99 1BA. A new document will come in your name. But you don't have to wait for that before you can get the car on the road.

You will have to arrange your own insurance for the car before you take it on the road. If the car is Mot'd already you can tax it straight away showing the V5C/2, MoT and your insurance. If the car has no Mot or tax you are allowed to take it on the highway to and from a pre-arranged MoT appontment. You MUST make the appointment because if you a pulled up by the police they will check the Mot station's appointment book. You must also have valid insurance for this. Once Mot'd you can get the tax.

One thing I forgot- if you don't intend to use the car on the road for a while and aren't going to tax it, as soon as the logbook comes in your name go down to your post office and get a SORN form fill it out and send it to Swansea, otherwise you will become liable for one of DVLA's famous fines. If untaxed the vehicle MUST be kept off road.

I would always advise that SORN should be done on-line. You get an near-instant acknowledgement via email and can therefore tell the fines office to go forth and multiply.

I wouldn't bother - it's too easy to confuse their simple minds.

 

The worst that can happen is that they will delay the issue of the V5 whilst they write to the old keeper to confirmn that it is OK to issue the V%. If they hear nothing after a set period of time, they issue anyway.

 

The other point to remember is that the V5 only defines the registered keeper of the vehicle - the owner is irrelevant to DVLA. You don't sign as seller and buyer; you sign as registered keeper and new keeper

To tax the car you will need:

 

the green new keeper's slip;

the MoT certificate;

the certificate of insurance or a cover note. The DD mandate/confirmation will not do. The policy will not do;

money for the duty payable.

 

You need to get onto the insurance co. to provide the certificate or a cover not. Usually they are pretty good about sending these within a couple of days.

Have phoned the insurance firm for the last three days.They first told me it would take 3-5 days to come.Phoned again to say it still hasnt come.Now they are saying it could take up to 14 days-followed by it must be lost so we will send another on Monday.Would not be so bad but need to Tax the car.

They keep saying you can do it online but you cant if you dont have Registration document in your name.Dont think i will use Saga again.So far its been a shambles.Someone else said the cover note could be emailed to you is this possible.
