It’s now quicker than ever to take off or put a registration number on a vehicle online.
You can now download the electronic V948 proof of entitlement certificate (eV948) to the registration number immediately.
What this means for customers
You’ll no longer need to wait for the vehicle registration certificate V5C (log book) to arrive in the post.
Downloading the eV948 will allow you to get your number plate made up quicker with your nearest registered number plate supplier (RNPS).
What else you need to know
- is valid for 3 working days from the date of issue - an electronic timestamp will be printed on the certificate
- can only be used once
- needs to be supported with all the necessary supporting documents when you go to get your number plate made up at the RNPS
The RNPS will not accept a certificate that’s expired. If the certificate expires you’ll need to wait for the V5C (log book) to arrive in the post.
