  • Question: Do DVLA send out tax reminders?

Answer: They do send out vehicle tax reminder letters (its called V11). Again, they will send it to the address in their records. Best practice is not to wait for them and to organize everything yourself.

One more thing:

If you did not received the V11 letter, you can use your V5C, V5C/2.

This is how that letter looks like by the way (I had to Google that thing!):

  1. My daughter has a private number plate on retention she has gave me the number plate how do I get it put onto my car

  2. I have a lorry parked outside my house it belongs to a guy who lives in another road, I have tried to have this vehicle moved as it is obstructing the road but to no avail, I have reported this lorry to you 3 times as the driver is driving this vehicle without tax I don’t know why this has been ignored by the DVLA. Do you have any idea how can i send them and inform them?
    thank you for this great website

  3. Hi I’m going to buy a CAT D car and the owner don’t have the V5 notes (logbook) he told me to contact DVLA. How it is possible to get it?

  4. Am trying to call from abroad to try and speak to a human being to confirm what the different codes mean so I can try and change my license to a Danish one (living in Copenhagen now) but I got passed around the robotic menu with just instructions on how to return to the menu. I’m giving up – I can’t be sitting listening to a robot voice over the odds for the pleasure of it. Hopefully I’ll be able to sort it alone but thanks for nothing, DVLA – as usual, a shoddy service. I look forward to when I no longer will have to deal with them.

    1. quite frankly if you have called you’ve dialed the wrong number! The DVLA do not use a robotic voice for their IVR. Also if you bothered to ring them, then chose option 5 from the main menu then chose 3 you’ll go straight to an agent who will give you what you need for your exchange. The fact that you felt the urge to come online to show your disgust at the world not revolving around you only proves that your move to another autocratic European state is of benefit to all left in the UK.

  5. All I want to do is Email them that they have sent me (Confirmation of vehicle tax.
    Thank you for using DVLA Vehicle Licensing Online.
    Your application for vehicle tax has been successful.)

    Only one problem! I live in Australia and don’t own a car in England.
    They have the wrong Email Address.
    But like all government department because I don’t have a UK post code I cannot send them a Email complaint.

    Bill Graham.

  6. This customer services, impossible to get past the options menu unless you agree to pay the “enforcement agency” their “fine”! I’ve had two letters today from the DVLA, one telling me they’ve checked and my vehicle is insured, the other telling me it isn’t and therefore my “fine” is payable.

  7. Hi i am selling my car which is registered with a person who is coming from Bulgaria, what will i have to do with the v5, also can i inform DVLA the moment he purchases the vehicle so i am not liable for the vehicle after that time.

  8. I believe my car has been cloned, receiving parking fines for places I have not visited. It has been reported to the Police and I have a incident number I need to contact the DVLA, but to which department and can it be done on line?

    1. Depending on the specific DVLA deportment you need. You just need to add prefix: +44 and remove the 0.

  9. I have tried calling DVLA on phone but to no avail. I have a bill sent to me to pay but I had already pay this bill. Been calling for them to reconcile the account but no one is picking my calls. I sent email but it bounced back. I dont know what’s going on.
