New Vehicle Enquiry Service

The DVLA have launched a new online service for vehicle enquiries. The new service allows motorists to check their MOT expiry dates easily.

It only requires the user to supply the registration number and make of the vehicle they want to check.

This is a big improvement over the old vehicle status check which required users to find their V5 registration document. From experience we know it is all too common to misplace these documents.

The service was developed as part of the government’s ongoing GOV.UK overhaul and the site is sure to become popular with the UK’s motorists.

Commenting on the launch of the new service, the DVLA digital comms team said:

Over the past few months, a small team here at DVLA have been working on making it simpler to tax your car or declare it off the road online.

For the beta, we’ve completely rebuilt the public facing service to make the process easier. We’ve removed steps that weren’t necessary any more, made the design clearer by using the GOV.UK look and feel and followed the new Government Digital by Default Service Standard. Here’s our assessment report.

We’ve also made some significant changes behind the scenes so that we can make changes quickly in response to user feedback.
