Download V62 Form for Applying V5C

V62 form is used to apply for vehicle registration certificate (V5C). You can download V62 form offline by clicking on the button given below. This form is used to get V5C when you have purchased a new car and have not received V5C within 4 weeks, or you have lost, damaged, stolen previously held V5C. However, if you have category A or category B vehicles, then you will not receive any vehicle certifications and such vehicles should be kept off the road.


Category AVehicles that have received extensive damage due to some major mishap like floods, fire, major accident and cannot be reused or salvaged are included in this category. Such vehicles have all the parts completely destroyed and hence cannot be driven on road. Such vehicles are only to be handled by the Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). They will completely destroy the vehicle and a Certificate of Destruction will be given to DVLA notifying that the vehicle has been completely destroyed.

Category B Unlike Category A vehicles, the parts of these vehicles can be used provided the body cover is completely removed. Such vehicles are also only handled by the ATF. The insurance companies do write this off completely on their books as this vehicle cannot be driven or used for resale.
