Duplicates and renewals of the vehicle’s circulation license (V5C)

The owner of a vehicle whose original log book (V5C) has been stolen, damaged, destroyed or lost can apply for a duplicate. The application of a duplicate will make the original log book null and void.

It is necessary to apply online on the Spanish DVLA website or, alternatively, in any DVLA regional office.

When the original log book has been lost, stolen or damaged, the documents required for the application of a duplicate are:

The MOT centre will request any past records to the Vehicles Archive of the General Management of Energy and Industrial and Mining Activity. This application form will be accompanied by:

  • The original vehicle’s technical report (I.T.V. card)
  • The vehicle log book (V5C) or a certificate issued by the DVLA.
  • Documents to apply for a duplicate of the technical report due to reconditioning.
  • The vehicle log book (V5C) or a certificate issued by the DVLA.
  • Written authorisation by the DVLA of the reconditioning.
  • The vehicle’s technical report (I.T.V. card), if available.
  • Documents to apply for a duplicate of the technical report due to a number plate change:
  • The vehicle log book (V5C) or a certificate issued by the DVLA.
  • The vehicle’s technical report.

Duplicates of the technical report

Have you lost your vehicle’s technical report (I.T.V. card)?

You can easily get a new one. It is necessary to differentiate whether it has been lost or stolen.

If you have lost your vehicle’s technical report, getting a new one is very simple. You just have to come to the MOT centre with your vehicle and complete the following steps:

  1. Fill in a ‘statement of loss’ and sign it.
  2. Our staff at the MOT centre will immediately verify your data against the DVLA database.
  3. The corresponding tax is charged.
  4. The vehicle is quickly tested.
  5. The new vehicle’s technical report can be issued on the same day, depending on the province where the vehicle is registered.

If the loss is due to a theft, there is only one little change: the ‘statement of loss’ must be completed at a ‘Guardia Civil’ or police station and then, you need to bring the statement to the MOT centre.

We can also issue duplicates of the vehicle’s technical report for other reasons: reconditioning, number plate change, auctions…

If the vehicle’s circulation license has also been lost, you will have to apply for a new one in the DVLA or through a ‘gestoría’ or management company. MOT centres do not issue any vehicle’s circulation licence.

Remember: every time you come to an MOT centre to carry a non-periodical test, you must bring an authorisation from the vehicle’s owner allowing you to complete the process on their behalf, as well as a copy of their ID or passport.

Service changes

In case of a change in the vehicle’s destination, according to the legislation in force RD 2042/1994, a test must be completed as well as the vehicle’s technical report (I.T.V. card), including the new destination and a new date for the test corresponding to the periodicity of the Autonomous Community MOT centres.

If the change in the vehicle’s destination takes place prior the due date of the first test, and given that this change does not imply any technical modification, it will only be recorded on the I.T.V. card., noting down the deadline of the first test that would correspond to the most severe situation between the two destinations.

The necessary documents for a service change are the following:

  • The vehicle’s technical report.
  • The vehicle’s circulation license (V5C)

Remember: every time you come to an MOT centre to carry a non-periodical test, you must bring an authorisation from the vehicle’s owner allowing you to complete the process on their behalf, as well as a copy of their ID or passport.

Imported used and new vehicles

The imported used vehicles must undertake a technical test so that the MOT centre can issue a Spanish I.T.V. card, regulated according to RD 750/2010.

Once the I.T.V. card is obtained, the owner must go to a DVLA office to register the vehicle.

You can come with no appointment since we save some time slots for this type of tests. There are a lot of professionals who ask for these appointments to avoid long queues before the MOT test, and we believe that both professionals and individuals deserve an equal service.

The necessary documents for these inspections are the following (except some cases):

  • Original documents from the country of origin.
  • Certificate of compliance of the vehicle’s manufacturer or report with the technical characteristics, following model form of RD 750/2010, signed by an authorized technician together with their statement of responsibility.
  • In the case of new vehicles, an authorized statement certifying it is a new vehicle.

A comprehensive vehicle’s test is completed, usually taking longer than usual. If you requested a previous appointment and all documents are correct, it is very likely to get the new technical report on the same day.

Remember: every time you come to an MOT centre to carry a non-periodical test, you must bring an authorisation from the vehicle’s owner allowing you to complete the process on their behalf, as well as a copy of their ID or passport.

Relevant changes

Have you ever carried out any changes in your vehicle?

Many of these changes are considered ‘relevant changes’ according to the law. Therefore, it is necessary that you go to an MOT centre with your vehicle to record the so-called change in your vehicle’s technical report.

The necessary documents can vary depending on the importance of the change. The most common are:

  • Vehicle’s technical report and circulation license.
  • Report of compliance of the vehicle’s manufacturer authorising the change in the vehicle.
  • Certificate of the garage where the reform has taken place.
  • In some cases a technical project is requested together with a final certificate of work and a statement of responsibility from the technician who has made the project.

Contact us about any doubt or question you may have via phone or e-mail.

Remember: every time you come to an MOT centre to carry a non-periodical test, you must bring an authorisation from the vehicle’s owner allowing you to complete the process on their behalf, as well as a copy of their ID or passport.

Historical vehicles

If your vehicle is 25 years old or more since it was registered for the first time, it is possible to consider it as historical. You will be able to increase the time between periodic tests and reduce some technical requirements of the test.

However, you will need to complete some administrative processing. Among these procedures, the Department of Industry must authorise the vehicle to be considered historical. It is the Department of Industry who decides the new frequency of the periodic tests and the vehicle’s elements that are exempt of being tested at an MOT centre.

We advise you to contact any Historical Vehicle Club, since they will help you out with this process.

You have to bring all the documents created along this process to any MOT centre as well as your vehicle. We will record your historical vehicle in the technical report accordingly.
