To Renew Your Car Tax: Call DVLA at 0844 241 2931

To drive a vehicle on the roads in the U.K., an individual needs to fulfill certain requirements such as being aware and updated aboutthe traffic rules and regulations. If an individual fails to fulfill any such requirements, then he may not be allowed to drive in the country. While being aware and updated about the rules is essential, it is also crucial to pay the car tax on time. To gain an understanding about the car tax, contact the telephone number of DVLA at 0300 790 6802.

Car tax, also known as the vehicle excise duty, vehicle tax or road tax, is the duty imposed by the government on all the cars that are driven on the public roads of the U.K. Paying it on time is the responsibility of every U.K. car owner. Dial 08701747001 for assistance from DVLA customer care. Wondering about the amount of tax you need to pay and how to calculate the same? With DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency), calculating and paying your vehicle tax is easy.

Calculate your car tax

Calculating your car tax is not a big task. All you need are the details of either engine size or fuel type and CO2 emissions. This information will depend on the vehicle’s registration date. Contact DVLA customer care number 0300 790 6802 for help.

An individual can check the required information about the car with the DVLA. Getting the information about the vehicle can be faster for those who have the V5C i.e. vehicle registration number. V5C is the vehicle registration document from the DVLA that contains all the necessary information about the car such as the date of registration, name of the manufacturer, the colour and engine size.

The applicable vehicle tax and whether the vehicle is taxed or not can also be done online by simply filling a form. All you need is the registration number, vehicle make and V5C document number (optional). In case of any assistance to know your vehicle information you can easily contact the DVLA customer service number at 0844 241 2931.

To ensure that an individual doesn’t miss out on the date due to pay tax, DVLA sends the timely reminders for the same along with options to pay the amount in total or in installments via a direct debit option or as an installment for 6 months. But, if the tax amount applicable is somewhere around £30 for the year, the person is not allowed to pay the same in installments.

Payment of the vehicle tax can be done online using the reference number mentioned on the reminder form. In case the car is due to have an MOT within the next month, the person cannot pay his tax until the MOT has been done. It must be remembered that a car cannot be taxed without having an MOT and insurance.

Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN)

SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) implies that an individual has declared his vehicle off the road and is no longer using it on the public roads. This implies that an individual doesn’t need to pay any tax or get its insurance renewed. For more details about SORN, please dial the contact number of DVLA at 0300 790 6802.

An individual must obtain SORN in any of the following situations:

1. The vehicle is not taxed.
2. The vehicle is not insured, whether it is due to a delay in renewing in the policy or a long term plan.
3. He wants to break a vehicle down for parts before scrapping it.
4. He has bought a vehicle and wants to keep it off the road (one can’t transfer a SORN from the previous keeper).
5. He doesn’t need to make a SORN if he has been sent a V11 reminder letter for a vehicle he has already sold.

Viewing information about the vehicle with the DVLA is easy, whether it is the registration date, SORN validity or engine size. All you need to have is a vehicle’s make and registration number. If you would like to access any kind of information from the DVLA or need some other kind of assistance, you may contact us at the DVLA telephone number at 0844 241 2931.
