Hi

It shouldn’t. The Registration form for a car that is registered with the DVLA, is only to show who is the Registered Keeper.

It is possible to still assert you are not the owner, providing you can evidence your Father purchased the car for you and he still considers himself the owner.

As you are the person in possession of the car, the law requires you must register yourself as the Keeper. This however, does not necessarily mean you are the owner, so it does need to be treated as an asset of yours, which may prevent you being able to use a DRO.
