DVLA’s transformation programme making headwayBack

By 2020 the DVLA plans to have migrated their systems from their outdated legacy platforms to a more modern and flexible open source landscape (OSL) environment and they have started testing some external transformation projects.

A number of new services are also being developed to improve both internal processes and external services for all DVLA’s customers. Over the coming months the DVLA will be working with customers to improve and expand the new digital service that replaces the Automated First Registration and Licensing (AFRL) web service.

The DVLA is also developing TACHOnet and tachograph services to meet new EU legislation and deliver an online system for tachograph transactions. User testing sessions have taken place to assess first application, renewal and replacement transactions as well as online tachograph services. Feedback from these tests is helping them to improve their design and features.

The DVLA recognises that many of their customers would prefer to transact with us by an application programming interface (API) so they are testing, with them, a new API, providing a way for software components to interact and reuse functionality or data. Their objective is to replace the existing leased line system, allowing customers to access their data.

New functionality was recently added to the ‘pay a fine’ online service, allowing fines for using or keeping an untaxed or uninsured vehicle to be paid online. Also, the link between the ‘Pay a fine’ and ‘Tax your vehicle’ services was improved.
