    Thanks for the advice, will give it another 2 weeks before i get on the blower.

    Filled in exact cc and the letter was a trade letter on headed paper giving all the details inc engine number so fingers crossed.
    Will let you know how i get on.

    Thanks again

    Sounds silly but i've found if you send a letter with your logbook explaining that you have changed the engine yourself this may not get though unless you add the wording " please accept this letter as proof needed " then the letter go's in the file no probs.

    You fill in the changes section on the V5C with the details. Note that they will not accept round numbers for engine cc has to be exact .

    You also need to provide proof of the changeover , see here for details and links to DVLA site .

    Good advise Shedster, that goes for any important documentation you send through the post.

    It's normally 6 weeks quoted. Ring them to check, usually arrives a couple of days later for some reason.

    I received my V5 back in the post today after only sending it early last week. I needed them to the spelling of my name, and change the colour from orange to white. They got my name right this time, but the colour still says orange.
