When a vehicle is stolen the first step should be to report the theft to the police. The police then notify DVLA of the theft.
Make sure you have all the details about your vehicle to hand before you report the theft to the police. This includes:
You will be given a crime reference number which you should keep safe as you will need it for any insurance claim
Contact your insurers as soon as possible. If you don't get your vehicle back, and need to make a claim, then you must tell DVLA the date you received payment from the insurers, and the insuring company's name and address.
Check the regulations for keeping your private registration number.
