Before the end of March I told you that the new PR service to 'Take a Registration Number off a Vehicle' was made available to the public and that the ‘Put a registration number on a vehicle’ service would be coming soon.
I’m pleased to say that this is now the case and the motor trade, as well as PR customers, can retain and assign a registration number online.
This means there are now 3 services available to the public with the first service ‘Motor traders: tell DVLA about the sale of a vehicle’ made available to the public on 20 January 2015.
Take up for all services has been brilliant especially as we’ve been restricted on promoting these services during the election period.
The current take up for the services against paper transactions being received are:
Motor traders: tell DVLA about the sale of a vehicle – 23% of all notifications of sale to the motor trade sent in by the motor trade.
Take a Registration Number off a Vehicle – 33% of all applications received.
Put a registration number on a vehicle –15% of all applications received
More to come...
Yes that’s right we still have 2 more services to come. These are:
- buy a vehicle from the trade
- private sale of a vehicle
We expect these to be available to the public during June 2015. But the work doesn’t stop there. We will continue to promote these services, encouraging your feedback to continuously improve the services to meet your customer needs.
If you need to carry out any of these services go to GOV.UK and use the online channel. Thousands are already doing so
A simply better service.
