Absolutely Not. We are in NO WAY affiliated with the DVLA.
This question, unsurprisingly, gets asked quite a lot. In fact it's not just posed as a question with some, during our first days on Facebook, just assuming that we are in fact part of the DVLA.
We can't blame them, with the DVLAs attempts to move everything online a product like ours would be of great benefit.
However, we are a completely independent company. We are in no way affiliated with the DVLA. Yes the DVLA has a reminder service but it's pretty simplistic and involves more effort. There we said it.
The only connection between VDD and the DVLA is that we were inspired to action when the Paper Tax Disc was discontinued a year ago.
