Testing a new tax disc and SORN service

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: DVLA Digital Services

Last week, we released new versions of our 'Tax your vehicle',  'Register your vehicle as off the road (SORN)' and 'Get vehicle information from DVLA' services into public beta.

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. The assessment report explains findings and recommendations from GDS. 

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

If you need to tax your car or declare it off the road, please give the beta service a go and let us know how it went by email or leaving a comment here.
