I have put a deposit down on a new car but cannot pick the car up until I receive my log book for my old car. It was lost when I moved house. Realistically how long on average do people wait? They said up to 4 weeks in the post office .
I filled it out and sent it off last Tuesday (27th March). Deposit put on the car on the Thursday and I told them about the log book for mine which isn't a problem but obviously I'm eager to get my new car lol
DVLA advise up to 4 weeks, but say not to contact them to chase until it’s been 6 weeks.
Being in the trade I’m dealing with V5s all the time and it can vary, but just recently they seem to have got quicker and most go through within the week or two at most. They also tend to go through quicker if you use recorded delivery.
Thank you @mbwoy84 for your very helpful response. My partner said I should call them tomorrow and just see if they have any updates but maybe we should just wait. It's been nearly 2 weeks now. I know it can take up to 4-6 but was being optimistic about how long it would take to come.
