Definitely, if the car is registered in your name, then only you should be allowed to sign the VC5 form, not anyone else. Here are some questions that come to mind though:

  • Are you the legal owner of the car too? Do you have a bill of sale to act of proof of purchase?
  • Does your name appear on the previous VC5 document?
  • How long ago was this transaction made?
  • Are you looking to get the car back?
