    How to register my new T6 camper van with the DVLA

    Hi just joined the T6 forum , I get my new converted camper van tomorrow. Is there a problem registering from a panel van to a campervan, as the gents converting the van says DVLA are not changing the v5c.

    Log Book Issue

    Noticed when I went to insure the van, it states in the logbook that it has 6 seats, when it clearly only has 5. I suppose I could complain about it being a light goods vehicle also and not an MPV.

    V5 Query

    I have a 2016 T6 and when I purchased it last year, it had two singles at front and rear bench seat for 3. I went to check my V5 for something today and when looking for the info I needed, I saw that it says it has six seats when I only have 5. Is this right or an error? Anybody know? TIA

    Dvla Petition

    The petition seems to have stalled. I have signed it. I am going to be registering my T6 van conversion soon and expect the "panel van with windows" decision from the DVLA. Can we muster up any more signatures?

    Advice Please: Shuttle Registered On Dvla As A Caravelle

    I’ve seen a vehicle (shuttle) I like that currently sits on a private plate. I ran the reg number on the MOT check on DVLA but it comes up as a Caravelle. The photos show it’s definitely a shuttle. I’m concerned, should I be?

    I have added some rear seat/ bed. Is it possible to update this online on the DVLA website or does it have to be done by post? If by post I can see on the DVLA website there are 2 postcodes. Which one do I send it to? Thanks Change vehicle details on a V5C registration certificate (log book)

    Hello All, we have just had the van converted with a 130RIB bed and slimline units. It has been fitted with a single burner/ sink as a double one wouldn't fit. Question is, has anyone been refused change of classification with a single burner as the DVLA states it must be a two ring burner.
