Vehicle Tax UK is free and uses the DVLA database to automatically check any GB vehicle Tax and MOT status for free.
Tax costs and vehicle information such as emissions etc are also displayed.

The latest (v1.8 onwards) version now auto completes the vehicle make field so only the Reg Number is required.
Enter the make manually if the Auto complete fails.

Please support the developers and click on the adverts, every penny counts !
We get nothing without your help clicking the advert. Thank you !

Apologies to users who have patiently waited for this update to make it work again.
Please remember we have no control over the DVLA web site.

For all other changes, please see *v1.8 below.

*NEW in v 1.1*
Now you can report unlicensed vehicles using the DVLA web site and perform FREE vehicle insurance checks for your own vehicle using the askMID web site.

* NEW in v1.2*

"Quantum" changed to "Quantum 1600 turbo"

* NEW in v1.3*
Northern Ireland specific buttons to automatically dial DVNI Customer Services (0845 number) or a Premium automated service (£1.50/min) to find out about your vehicle tax. The DVNI web site does not provide a means to check your vehicle license details so the only way is to telephone them.
Report an unlicensed vehicle in Northern Ireland.
"Quantum" and "Quantum 1600 Turbo" listed - thanks Tony.

Works with new DVLA web site
Displays MOT status as well as Tax status
Auto fills the car make or you can enter it manually

Added SORN support.

Simply enter the Vehicle Registration Number (registration plate) and manufacturer make and it tells you:

Date of Liability (when your tax runs out)
Date of vehicles first registration
Year of manufacture
Cylinder capacity
CO2 emissions (in g/Km)
Fuel type
Export marker
Vehicle status (license due or not)
Vehicle colour
Vehicle type of approval
6 and 12 months rate (the cost to tax the vehicle for 6 and 12 months)

Displays the Date of Liability and Vehicle status in red if it is not taxed. Displays them in green if it is taxed.

Useful for the following occasions:
Check your vehicle has been taxed and the DVLA have it on their database.
See due/expired dates for Tax and MOT.
See how much 6 or 12 months road tax should cost you.
When buying a second hand car, check the tax disc is valid.
When buying a second hand car, check the registration number belongs to the car.
After a road accident, check the other vehicles road tax status.
Using another vehicle temporarily, check it's taxed before taking it onto the road.
