Further details of the changes have also been released; there have been a number of developments including:
- The delivery of some services previously undertaken by the DVLA Local Offices to be made available through the Post Office (not first Registrations though).
- Central distribution of tax discs (from DVLA Swansea) for all first registrations. Legislation allowing for a vehicle to be driven for 14 days without displaying a tax disc will be implemented in parallel.
- Provision will be made for alternative addresses for tax disc despatch.
- There will be further encouragement to increase AFRL take-up including removal of the joining fee for AFRL web use and a significant reduction in the indemnity level for those that choose a direct debit option. Motorcycle dealers will now not pay the AFRL joining fee or indemnity.
