New DVLA services
DVLA has introduced two new services. The first one allows motor traders to tell DVLA that they have bought or taken a vehicle in part exchange. Go to www.gov.uk/motor-traders-sale-vehicle to try this. It is available Monday to Saturday, 08.00 to 18.00. The other lets both motor traders and customers take a registration number off a vehicle. Applying online provides instant confirmation that a number has been taken off a vehicle and that a replacement number has been allocated. It now costs £80 and the retention period has been extended to ten years. Visit www.gov.uk/keep-registration-number to use this service.
