LONG AWAITED CHERISHED TRANSFER NEWS FROM THE DVLABack

DvlaAfter extensive and continues lobbying from the NFDA to move cherished transfers and registration of private No. plates to an online system, the DVLA have announced an IT solution will be available in the first quarter of next year in time for the plate-change month .

This Wednesday, Stephen Latham from the NFDA was privileged to one of the first from the motor industry to see how the new system will operate.

Primarily the new online system will work in two stages, firstly a process to remove the No.Plate from the existing vehicle and allocate a age-related plate to replace it on the old vehicle, this process will confirm it has happened and allocate a retention number that will be useable to tax the new vehicle on the AFRL system. The next stage is to register the new vehicle on the AFRL system with the retention number allocated, therefore the whole transaction can be carried out on the same day and when this system is implemented the normal transfer will reduce from £105 (£80 + £25) to £80.

About a month later a identical system will be introduced for used car sales allowing the transfer and taxation to be handled in one day on line.

The NFDA have pursued this IT solution for the last four years and will update you as more details and timings become available.
