He will complete that part of the V5 document which transfers ownership to us and leave you with the portion of the form that you need to sign and send off to the DVLA at Swansea. This is a legal requirement which states that ownership of the vehicle has now been transferred and that you have no further legal responsibility for it. It is important that you send this portion off within 7 days. And we will never charge any hidden admin fees.
