Keepers of qualifying vehicles that have not been sold in the last three years receive a warning from the DVLA approximately three weeks before their current tax is set to expire. The V11 ‘Vehicle Licence Application or SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification)’ has two goals and is thus known as the V11 ‘Vehicle Licence Application.
The V11 can be used to update the vehicle’s tax or declare that it will not be used on public roads (see Statutory Off Road Notification).
With V11, tax can be renewed online, by phone, or at a post office that handles vehicle taxes may all be used to renew your tax. Visit the Post Office Branch Finder to find out if there is a post office in your area that handles vehicle taxes.

This includes a V5C (Registration Certificate, or log book) with an 11-digit reference number
The V5C/2 (New Keeper’s details slip) has a 12-digit reference number
If you don’t have any of these documents, you’ll need to submit a V62 (Application for a Vehicle Registration form) from the DVLA; which will take you to where you may download and fill out the form; then send it to the DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1DD with the correct fee.
