The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has released a new service for drivers to apply for duplicate log books online.

It said the ‘Get a vehicle log book (V5C)’ channel makes it possible to replace a lost or damaged book in five days rather than six weeks.

Every year it issues around 500,000 of the duplicates.

Julie Lennard, DVLA chief executive, said: “DVLA’s new online service to apply for a duplicate log book is quick and easy to use and means customers who have unfortunately either lost or damaged theirs will receive their new document within a matter of days.”

The release comes three months after the agency launched an online service for updating address details in a log book.
