The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has developed an online service for drivers to update address details in their vehicle log books.
It is sited on GOV.UK and requires the person to have the registration number of the vehicle, its log book reference number and a UK address.
DVLA said it takes less than two minutes to complete, that the information is updated instantly on its systems and the driver will receive a new log book within five working days. They will also receive an email telling them to destroy the old log book.
Its chief executive Julie Lennard said: “We’re launching this service at a time when online services are becoming even more vital to help people get back on the road. This new online service is quicker and easier than sending your log book to DVLA so if you’ve just moved home try the service and see how simple it is.”
Last year DVLA received around 1.4 million paper applications for change of address on a vehicle record.
