The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has launched a public consultation on the future of vehicle registration and licensing services in Northern Ireland.
The consultation will run until 11 September 2013 and is intended to supplement the previous UK-wide ‘Transforming DVLA Services’ consultation which ran from December 2011 to March 2012.
There is a long-standing disparity in the level of vehicle registration and licensing services available to motorists in Northern Ireland compared with the rest of the UK, and the consultation proposes to change this.
More services would be available at Post Offices and there would be a wider range of electronic services available. The proposals are designed to deliver clear benefits to businesses and the motor trade and provide a range of consistent services and processes throughout the UK. Any changes to services arising from the consultation would be introduced next year.
Alongside the consultation document, the DVLA has published detailed assessments of the impacts of the proposals. The documents, and how to respond, can be found online.
