Insurers and we are generally seeking information relevant to the incident you are reporting.  The common denominator is the involvement of a vehicle in respect of which a great deal of information is usually available.  What will you need and how can you get it?

A Purchase Receipt:


If you are unable to locate this, try to obtain evidence of the purchase or provide details of the seller. The price paid will give an indication of the condition of the vehicle at purchase and a receipt may assist to support the history by displaying, as an example, mileage.

The Registration certyificate, V5C, or 'log book':


Whilst not a 'title' document, this is an important form and insurers will likely wish to have sight of this - almost certainly if your vehicle is a total loss following a collision or theft. If you have lost it, waste no time and obtain a duplicate from the DVLA - information about the process can be found by clicking here.

An MoT:


Not a document we will press you for.  The paper 'certificate' is no more than a receipt, the history can be obtained on-line.  NEVER rely upon the paper copy, always check at .Gov.UK
