Vehicle tax commonly asked questions
Why is some of my vehicle information incorrect?
DVLA takes up to 7 days to update their system, so very recent changes may not be reflected in your free car tax online check.
Why should I use CarVeto to check car tax and not the Gov.uk website?
Our free reports include more helpful information than the Gov.uk vehicle registration database. Learn more about your car, including full vehicle details, performance specifications, and detailed MOT history. Our Gold check includes a stolen car check, mileage anomalies and past car write-off markers.
