star this property answer text <p>Lorry drivers from the Republic of Ireland pay for the HGV Levy in the same ways as users from other countries. The levy can be paid online, at a number of official Point of Sale (PoS) locations, at driver self-serve facilities offered by some operators and through a number of booking agents. The majority of levy purchases are via the HGV Levy website.</p><p> </p><p>The overall compliance rate for foreign vehicles is high, according to figures collected by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency in Great Britain, at 95%. The Department for Transport has not produced equivalent compliance rates by country of origin, but there are indications that vehicles from Ireland in Great Britain have a very similar compliance rate compared to vehicles from other countries.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In 2017-18, HGV levy revenue from non-UK hauliers was £50m. Of this, approximately £4m was from vehicles registered in the Republic of Ireland, £45m was from vehicles registered in other EU Member States, and £1m was from vehicles registered elsewhere. There were vehicles from all EU Member States paying the HGV levy during 2017-18.</p><p> </p><p>The HGV levy is enforced by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Vehicles are stopped at the roadside and, if they have not paid the right levy, the vehicle is held until a fine of £300 is paid. The DVSA targets vehicles that are known not to have paid the levy, and it also checks for levy compliance of vehicles that are stopped for other reasons.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) recognises that developments in this field are moving quickly and in January 2018, the specific reference to “blood glucose monitoring” was removed from the relevant regulations. This will potentially allow alternative methods of glucose monitoring to be accommodated in the future if it is deemed appropriate by expert medical opinion in the context of driving and maintaining road safety.</p><p>The DVLA is working closely with the Secretary of State for Transport’s Honorary Medical Advisory Panel on driving and diabetes mellitus to understand the potential impacts of allowing the use of alternative methods of glucose monitoring. This issue was discussed at the panel’s October meeting. The panel feels that there is currently insufficient evidence about the use of flash glucose monitoring devices in the context of driving to ensure road safety standards are maintained. The panel will continue to consider further evidence as it emerges.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) collects £6 billion in vehicle excise duty every year. The changes to the administration of vehicle excise duty are expected to save the DVLA £13.8m each year. A breakdown of these savings is shown below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>No longer having to print or store tax discs.</p></td><td><p>£1.3m pa</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>No longer having to post tax discs to customers.</p></td><td><p>£7.9m pa</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>No longer having to process applications for vehicle excise duty refunds</p><p>(which are now paid automatically without the need for an application) or handle enquiries about lost or missing tax discs.</p></td><td><p>£1.2m pa</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Reduction in Post Office Ltd costs as they no longer issue paper tax discs, but offer an assisted digital service instead.</p></td><td><p>£3.4m pa</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Businesses will also save an estimated £8.6m each year from not having to post tax discs to customers, apply for refunds of vehicle excise duty and pay to replace lost or stolen tax discs.</p><p> </p><p>The Tax Impact and Information Note published by Her Majesty’s Treasury alongside the Finance Bill 2014 stated that abolition of the tax disc was not expected to have an Exchequer impact. The DVLA operates a comprehensive package of measures to tackle vehicle excise duty evasion. These range from the use of Automatic Number Plate Recognition camera, reminder letters, and penalties through to court prosecutions and the wheelclamping and/or removal of unlicensed vehicles. This approach has not changed following abolition of the tax disc. The DVLA will continue to monitor vehicle excise duty evasion rates.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
