URGENT: Going to Europe on Sunday and no V5 yet
Having recently moved house, I duly sent my documents off to the DVLA for a change of address to avoid the £1000 fine they like to threaten me with. I got my licence back Thursday morning, but my V5 still hasn't materialised. Naturally, I'm slightly panicked and I'm not comfortable with travelling without it. The only solution I can think of, other than delaying my departure (not an option), is to take my purchase receipt (dated April '06) and my logbook as proof of ownership. Does anyone think this is a particularly bad idea? Obviously, I'm going to be terrified if I get pulled anywhere which will take some of the fun out of the journey, but it's either that or don't go at all. I'm literally only travelling through EU member states if that makes any difference (well, less border guards anyway).
How long does it take the DVLA to type 5 damn lines and put a piece of paper in an envelope?!
