To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the cost to the public purse was of issuing V5C vehicle registration certificates to all owners of cars; and if she will make a statement.

The new style V5C vehicle registration certificate has been issued since August 2010 to keepers of newly registered vehicles and to those keepers making changes to a vehicle’s registration details. These documents would have been issued in the normal course of business and represent no extra cost.

Since October 2011, the document has also been issued for vehicles which do not already have one, when they are re-licensed or declared to be off-road. This accelerated production is expected to cover the entire national vehicle fleet within 12 months and is estimated to cost around £6 million to complete. The DVLA is taking action to recover these costs from a third party.
