A vehicle registration certificate (or V5C document) is issued by DVLA and contains information about the vehicle and the keeper that the registration certificate pertains to.
The vehicle registration number is a number and letter combination that's unique to each vehicle. This is shown on the registration certificate.
The registration certificate is helpful in that it contains sections that allow you to action other services of the DVLA. For instance you may wish to buy or sell a vehicle, or change your name and address details.
