Sale of Logbooks

Postby POMMReg » Fri May 17, 2019 4:19 pm

In correspondance with DVLA to resolve the problem of the sale of logbooks/rf60's.

Those of you with advice, comments etc. please contact me.

Thanks.

Anyhow, I'll give it a go, SO much scope for vehicle theft if all some basket has to do is buy a £20 logbook off ebay & pinch a vehicle.

Additional problem being DVLA place more importance on "documentation" than it does on actual evidence that the vehicle IS what it proports to be....ie alarm bell's with new chassis plate...

The DVLA don't give a damn and at the end of the day DVLA own the logbook not the vehicle keeper :evil:

No comment needed really - your posting name seems to cover the situation quite adequately! 8)

All we can do is record them, interestingly how some vendors ALSO hide the registrations, not just the chassis numbers....so why would anyone buy a rf60 with NO idea of the regn..as for "Uncancelled",
just plain dodgy to me!!

E-mail back from the Transpoet Minister's office, have NO control over sale of old logbooks, however, those advertised WITH a current v5c lockbooks can be voided, ie; reasoning behind regns often obscured.

Nice long message, but nothing we didn't expect!

I don't see a problem with selling buff logbooks, it would be nice to find the original one for a car you have, though the chances are very slim.
