An important warning message.

Stolen v5 registration docs

We advise buyers of used cars to be particulary vigilant at the present time,as a number of documents (also known as log books) have been stolen from the dvla.

The documents in question fall into the following two categories:

A)Those that bear the prefix AP in their serial number (at the top left hand corner of the document)and fall within the following ranges:

AP 8022601 TO AP8024400

AP 9424801 TO AP9426600

AP 9430201 TO AP9432000

AP 9435601 TO AP9437400

AP 9448201 TO AP9450000

B ) Those that brear the prefix an and fall within the following range:

AN 8854201 TO AN8859600

if anyone is offered a vehicle for sale accompanied by one of these documents they should contact the dvla on 0870 241 1878, or your local police station

With regards to the above

If you are wary of the V5 document look at the type font - it is totally different from the kind DVLA use

Furthermore, always, always, ALWAYS contact the previous keeper about the car - if you fail to make contact WALK AWAY

ALWAYS resist what appears to be 'too good to be true' - there is no such thing

Never EVER meet and buy at motorway services - aaargh!! the amount of people doing that still, you would not believe.

The stolen documents will soon become obselete as DVLA are now issuing new EU documents, which I am told will have been issued to every registered keeper of a vehicle in the UK by June.

Take care with used car buying - I unfortunately take stolen vehicles off innocent purchasers every week, without a chance of them getting their money back.
