About DVLA

The DVLA Car Tax department, as you might have guessed, is part of the DVLA, which is based in Swansea. They deal with the taxation of all cars, and the vast majority of cars need to have tax in order to legally drive them on the road. They used to issue a tax disc to everyone purchasing car tax, however this isn’t the case anymore, as car tax records are now only held online.

Before you try to purchase your car tax, you must ensure that you have a valid MOT certificate, unless your car is under three years old. You might also need to have a valid reduced pollution certificate, although this isn’t as common. Those from Northern Ireland will also need to have an insurance certificate. When you call DVLA Car Tax, make sure you have these near to you, just in case you need to refer to them.

How Is Car Tax Obtained?

It is really easy to get tax for your car. You should be sent a reminder in the post that your car needs to have its taxation renewed, however many now use a rolling monthly payment, which continues indefinitely – meaning there’s no need to update it. To get car tax, you’ll need to have a valid MOT for your car, as well as proof of insurance. Cars under three years old are exempt from the MOT requirement though, as they don’t need them. Car tax can be bought online, over the phone, or by heading to your local Post Office.

How Much Does Car Tax Cost?

The answer to this varies from car to car, as the price of car insurance is calculated by looking at either its engine type, or the fuel type and CO2 emissions (depending on when the car was manufactured). There’s a handy tool on the government website which can be used to estimate the tax payable per year on a vehicle, and it is certainly a good idea to use it before purchasing a new car. After all, you really don’t want to get home before finding that your new car is in the highest tax bracket, do you?

How Do the DVLA Know When You Don’t Have Car Tax?

Many different stories abound about the ways in which the DVLA catch untaxed drivers, however the world of espionage and high-tech spying is pretty far from the truth. Their main tool for finding untaxed drivers is their database, which will tell them whether a car has insurance. If it doesn’t they’ll want to see that a SORN notice has been applied to it, which tells them that the car is off the road and not being used. There are, of course, other ways to catch those with no tax as well, such as being pulled over by the police on a routine stop. The moral of the story is simple: if you have a car, make sure you have car tax, otherwise it will catch up with you in the end.

What is Car Tax Spent On?

This is actually an incredibly difficult question to answer. Way back in time (prior to 1937), there was something called Road Tax, and this was the olden-day equivalent to car tax. It was spent solely on the road infrastructure of the country, ensuring that there was a direct correlation between tax paid and improvements to the roads. This is not the case anymore though, much to the frustration of many drivers in the UK.

The reason so many are frustrated is simple: After 1937, the government abolished Road Tax and instead introduced Vehicle Excise Duty, which is the more official name for the modern day car tax. Vehicle Excise Duty is treated as a general tax, therefore it is bundled together with other taxes to form a huge pool of money, which is then spent on anything the government sees fit. This means that your car tax could be getting spent on road repairs, but it could also be being spent on a huge variety of other projects as well.

So, that should answer many of the questions you might have about car tax. Perhaps it’s a good idea to check right now if you have valid insurance for your car? If you are unsure, make sure you ring the DVLA straight away – using the contact number found here at Contact Number UK, of course.
