Default Finding previous owner - 1st June 2018, 02:51 PM

Hi - we recently purchased a Cat C Mini One. We have come to apply for the new log book and tax the car and the DVLA and Post Office can't help as we do not have the Post Code of the previous owner.
Is there anyway to get the post code (don't need full address) or do we have to wait the quoted 6 weeks to get the log book back before we can Tax the car?
any help gratefully appreciated.

There are websites which show you the number of previous owners (for a fee) but it won’t disclose their personal details due to data protection. I’m afraid this will turn out to be a waiting game.

I think they there is a form you can fill out and the dvla contacts them on your behalf for a fee but I guess no point in that as will take as long

Usually takes about 4 weeks for the log book in my experience

I'm pretty sure you can tax the car much easier now without previous owners postcode? Online? I may be wrong think you just need the green slip from the old log book? I guess you have no docs at all?
