John, thank you for your reply.
You can get a replacement if your original V5C certificate has been lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed by phoning DVLA or filling a form V62 and taking it to a Post office or sending it to DVLA (a lengthy process)
You can apply by phone if
- you were shown as the registered keeper on the original registration certificate
- your name, address and vehicle details haven't changed
- you can pay the £25 fee by debit or credit card
DVLA Telephone: 0300(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>
Once you have made a call, ask them how long it would take to get a Road Tax disc and also ask if you could drive with a sticker saying duplicate V5C applied for before the car can be taxed.
If you need more information please let me know before you rate my service.
