Procedure[edit]

You can use the V11 reminder to tax:

Apply by Online
Taxing your vehicle with an exemption certificate

    • Certificate of Entitlement to Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
    • annual Certificate of Entitlement
    • DLA404 Certificate
    • MHS330 Certificate
    • WPA0442 Certificate
  • You will also need the surname, date of birth and national insurance number of the exemption certificate holder along with the certificate serial number. You dont need a credit card or debit card if applying to tax your vehicle in the disabled tax class.
  • You cannot tax in the disabled tax class for the first time online or by phone. This can only be done at a Post Office branch that issues tax discs.
Apply by phone
  • Apply by phone on 0300 123 4321. Text phone/minicom 0300 790 6201.
At a Post Office branch or by post
  • Use the V11 reminder in person at any Post Office branch that issues tax discs or by post to the address shown on the reminder form.
  • You need to take or send the following:
    • the completed V11 reminder
    • insurance certificate or cover note must be valid when the tax disc starts
    • valid MOT certificate if the car or motorcycle is over three years old must be valid when the tax disc starts (an electronic check of your MOT will also be made)
    • the payment shown on the reminder (not needed if your vehicle is exempt from paying vehicle tax)
  • The V11 reminder will be returned to you when the tax disc is issued.

Required Documents[edit]

  • Your identity documents
  • Your Residential address proof
  • Certificate of Entitlement to Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Annual Certificate of Entitlement
  • DLA404 Certificate
  • MHS330 Certificate
  • WPA0442 Certificate
Identity documents

You must provide original documents. DVLA wont accept photocopies or laminated certificates.

United Kingdom (UK) digital passports
  • If you hold a digital passport (the photograph and signature appear on the same page), DVLA can confirm your identity with the Identity and Passport Service. You dont have to send your passport to DVLA.
  • When applying online youll be asked to provide your nine digit passport number allowing DVLA to confirm your identity.
  • If you apply by post, using the D1 'application for a driving licence', write your nine digit passport number and your signature in the 'confirming your identity' section of the D1 form.
Other types of identification
  • DVLA also accepts the following documents as confirmation of your identity. Unlike the digital passport though, you'll need to send your identity document with your application:
    • full valid current passport
    • biometric residence permit (formerly known as the identity card for foreign nationals)
    • UK certificate of naturalisation
  • Do not send in your passport if you need it within the next month. If this is the case you should consider delaying your licence application until you can send it with your passport to DVLA.
  • If youve reached State Pension age, you can provide originals of one of the following in your name:
    • recent (within three months) bank or building society statement showing your pension payment and National Insurance number
    • BR2102, BR2103 or BR5899 letter confirming your eligibility for the State Pension
UK birth and adoption certificates
  • UK birth and adoption certificates can also be used, however, as they are not absolute proof of identity, they must be accompanied by one of the following:
  • National Insurance card or a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions containing your National Insurance number
  • photocopy of the front page of a benefits book or an original benefits claim letter
  • P45, P60 or pay slip
  • marriage certificate or divorce papers (decree nisi or absolute)
  • college or university union card or school record
  • If you don't have a birth or adoption certificate, or the one that you have doesnt show your full name or country of birth, contact your local register office.
Return of your identity documents
  • DVLA will return your licence and identity documents separately, it cannot guarantee to return your identity documents by a set date. If you would like your identity documents returned by special delivery, include a stamped self-addressed special delivery envelope with your application. Keep a note of the serial number.
  • If you do not get your identity documents back within two weeks of receiving your photocard licence, phone DVLA Customer Enquiries on 0300 790 6801.
Note

Unless you contact DVLA within three months of the date you sent your application, it will be difficult to carry out the necessary investigation.
