Numberplate woes solved

DVLA amends their website to incorporate rules that were implemented 2 years ago.

The DVLA ‘s website had an outdated page offering incorrect information to millions of classic car owners in the UK, this has now been amended even though the rules were implemented 2 years ago.

The DVLA had quietly announced that the legislation relating to historic vehicle number plates was now applied on the same basis as rolling tax exemption, yet their website had still not been updated with this information until last week.

Until the changes had been amended the website still stated that ‘All vehicles manufactured after 1.1.1973 must display number plates of reflex-reflecting material’ and that ‘Vehicles constructed before 1.1.1973 may display traditional black and white plates’.

The DVLA have now replaced the outdated information and the website now has the correct information showing which reads: Since April 2016 vehicles manufactured before 1st January 1976 can display the older style number plates.
