What you need to provide

You must provide a copy of your current operating licence plate.

We will use your vehicle registration number to check your vehicle is eligible for the discount.

If the DVLA does not hold the information for your vehicle, you will need to provide your vehicle registration document (V5C) to prove your vehicle’s:

  • fuel type
  • first registration date
  • emissions.
The quickest way of providing this information is to upload it when making your application. For example, you can upload a document from your computer or take a photo with your phone or tablet.

If you are unable to upload your documents to the completed application form, you can take them to the library.

This discount will end on 31 July 2025.
