Driving licenses were introduced in the UK in 1903, a central governing agency was only established over half a century later in 1965 with the founding of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre (DVLC). The new agency took over the management of motor vehicles from local councils and post offices.
Owing to the increased responsibilities and revenues of the Swansea-based DVLC, it was co-opted into the Department for Transport in 1990 and was upgraded into an executive agency with the full weight and power of the government behind it. It was also renamed to Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to reflect its new status.
Today, DVLA manages multiple databases containing the records of 40 million vehicles used on the roads in the United Kingdom and over 47 million drivers, along with licensing, taxation, registration and owner (individuals and companies) information. In 2015, DLVA collected in excess of £6 billion in Vehicle Excise Duty.
Taxing your vehicle is a must if you are wanting to drive on public roads. You are able to purchase car tax by contacting DVLA, using the contact number provided. A member of DVLA’s customer services will provide instructions on how to tax your vehicle and may provide you with the appropriate forms if needed. Car tax can be paid for via debit card, credit card or direct debit. You are able to tax your vehicle using a reference number from:
A reminder – (v11)
‘last chance’ warning letter from the DVLA
Your vehicle log book (that is in your name) – (v5c)
‘new keeper’s details’ slip from a recently bought logbook – (v5c/2)
The vehicle register held by DVLA is used in many ways. For example, by the DVLA itself to identify untaxed vehicles, and by outside agencies to identify keepers of cars entering central London who have not paid the congestion charge, or who exceed speed limits on a road that has speed cameras by matching the cars to their keepers utilising the DVLA database. The current DVLA vehicle register was built by EDS in 1996, with a planned implementation date on October 1998, though actual implementation was delayed by a year. It uses a client–server architecture and uses the vehicle identification number, rather than the registration plate, as the primary key to track vehicles, eliminating the possibility of having multiple registrations for a single vehicle.
When an insurance company writes off a car, the registration document (V5 logbook) is surrendered to them and destroyed. The insurance company will then notify the DVLA that the vehicle has been written off. This notification will set a “VIC marker” on the vehicle record on the DVLA database.
DVLA database records are used by commercial vehicle check companies to offer a comprehensive individual car check to prospective purchasers.
The database of drivers, developed in the late 1980s, holds details of some 42 million driving licence holders in the UK. It is used to produce driving licences and to assist bodies such as the Driving Standards Agency, police and courts in the enforcement of legislation concerning driving entitlements and road safety.
