According to latest figures recently released by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), more than half of all motorists now use digital services to tax or declare their vehicles off road.
The DVLA’s digital service was used more than 26 million times in 2011, and has been used more than 100 million times since it’s online and telephone facilities began.
Roads Minister Mike Penning said: “The numbers show that more and more motorists want to deal with the DVLA at a time and place that suits them. The digital service is quick and easy to use and enables the DVLA to automatically check that MOT and insurance is in place so customers do not have to dig out additional paperwork.”
Around two million vehicles are currently taxed or declared off road by the digital service each month. Last year the 28 February 2011 was the busiest day for this service when 227,000 vehicles were taxed or declared off road.
