Details

Paper applications sent to our office in Swansea will take longer to process. This is because we have a reduced number of staff in our building to comply with social distancing requirements and to ensure staff safety.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Use this form if you want to apply for information about:

  • your vehicle
  • a vehicle previously registered to you
  • the registered keeper of a vehicle which is registered to someone else

If you want to request information about the registered keeper of a vehicle which is registered to someone else, you must show ‘reasonable cause’ for wanting this information and how it will be used.
