MOT Status and MOT History Check
You can check if an MOT certificate is genuine or if a vehicle has failed an MOT test by doing an MOT check online. You can also check all of a cars MOT history, this will allow you to see if a vehicle has had any major failures in the past and it will also allow you to make sure the mileage is correct as everytime a vehicle has an MOT, the mileage at the time is recorded.
All you need to carry out either of these checks is the vehicle registration, the Logbook (V5) or current MOT pass/ fail certificate. Click on the banner below to check a vehicles MOT status or history.

Claim A Refund Of Vehicle Road Tax
You can apply for a refund of vehicle tax if you are the current registered keeper or were the last registered keeper of your vehicle.
All you need to do is fill out a V14 form and post it back to the DVLA with your tax disc. You need to post your refund application before the first day of the month that you are claiming the refund. You also need to tell DVLA why you are applying for a refund. This may be because the vehicle has been:
Retaxed in a nil value tax class - like the disabled tax class
Taken off the road - SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) in place with DVLA
Your application will be rejected if you don't give these details and a rejection letter sent to you. The name on the refund application should also match exactly what’s on your vehicle registration certificate (V5C).
If you haven’t already told DVLA about any of the notices mentioned you can send one with your refund application.
Do not apply for a refund if your vehicle is in the process of having its registration number transferred or retained. The tax disc will be dealt with at the time of the transfer or retention application.
