Changes to V5c

We're waiting for Paul B to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,
statutory instrument 2742 of the Road Vehicles (Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2002 states that, "(1) where any alteration is made to a vehicle so as to make any of the particulars set out in the registration document incorrect, the registered keeper shall deliver to the Secretary of State—

(a)notification of the alteration

(3) The Secretary of State may require the registered keeper to furnish such evidence as he may reasonably require to show that the alteration has taken place."

My questions relating to the statutory instrument and act above are:

1)Are there any restrictions on what particulars can be changed on the V5c document?

2) What is the DVLA policy on V5c changes?

3) What evidence would the DVLA expect to be reasonable evidence?

Yours faithfully,

Paul B

If there is a change to the V5c document what happens to this information? Does it remain static in the DVLA database or is it communicated to other government agencies? For example, do the police have their own database? When they stop someone, do they query the DVLA database directly?
