“I to renewed my car tax on what I thought was the...”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by MoiraN (1 review written)

I to renewed my car tax on what I thought was the official DVLA website. I had used the website before and it looked exactly the same. I did not find out that I had been charged £40 until my credit card statement arrived. I contacted the DVLA and was told that the site was a private website that recorded my details and sent them to the DVLA to purchase my tax disc and charged me for the privilege. What a rip off! How are they allowed to get away with it. This should be featured on Watchdog to… Read Full Review

“What a rip off”

Written on: 08/06/2014 by victimnumberonemillion (1 review written)

I renewed my tax disc on line as I have for many years only to find when I checked my account that an additional £40.00 had been taken !! A total and utter rip off that apparently I can do nothing about How very sly and sneaky. I would appreciated a site that was clear about its actual service and the costs involved so the victims of this would realise what they were letting themselves in for Back to the post office for me you would think in this day and age something could be done about… Read Full Review

“car tax”

Written on: 16/05/2014 by McDaniel43 (1 review written)

I thought I was renewing my car tax with the DVLA with the website on the v11 form but to my dismay this was not the case . instead it went through an agent which charged me £40.00 but I did not know this until I checked my bank account. I called the DVLA and they told me it was a bogus email address and I cannot get my money back… Read Full Review

“Way better than queing at Post Office”

Written on: 30/03/2014

If you have a problem navigating this website, then its time to go on a basic course!. Or sell your computer. If someone has screwed up on insurance or MOT database then you have a problem. Both databases can be checked before applying. The rest is easy peasy. I currently have a small problem, as the previous owner had vehicle untaxed/not on sorn for two years!. DVLA sent me updated V5c, when I bought vehicle,but made no ref. to its status.(typical DVLA!!). they now threaten ME with legal… Read Full Review

What a load of rubish.
Their website has been closed down because they are misrepresenting themselves as a .gvo,org site.
If you can afford to pay these people £40 to forward your online application to the DVLA on your behalf then you've got to much money.

Written on: 09/01/2009 by Higgs Boson (5 reviews written)

I've used the DVLA website for the last few years to update my road tax online. Like with other UK motorists I get the "rnew my road tax" letter a few weeks before I need to buy it new. All I then do is log on and input the remonder code printed on the letter and give them my credit card number. I don;t even need to confirm my name or anything as the DVLA search the car insurance database to make sure I own the car & I'm insured, then they send the tax disc to the car owners address. Perfect!… Read Full Review
