Huge rise in untaxed vehicles

Untaxed vehicles up to 5%An investigation has been launched after a survey by The Department of Transport revealed that a massive 5% of vehicles are unlicensed, costing taxpayers £217m over the last year. Up from 3.6% in 2005 the figure is double the DVLA’s target of 2.5%. The situation for motorcycles is even worse with a staggering 37% of all motorcycles being unlicensed.

It has also emerged that over 60% of people who failed to pay fines for untaxed vehicles were not pursued through the courts or using debt collectors and many people were not chased after their first offence.

The National Audit Office has warned that confidence in the DVLA’s ability to enforce Vehicle Excise Duty risked being seriously undermined.
