A Strange email spam has arrived in my inbox that pretends to be from DVLA, regarding vehicle tax, but contains phising links and is SPAM.


This is what it looks like, so be careful out there with any unsolicited email.

Our records show that you are not up-to-date with your vehicle tax.

This is a reminder (V11) and a ‘last chance’ warning letter from us

Tax your car, motorcycle or other vehicle today to avoid unpleasant consequences.

You must tax your vehicle even if you don’t have to pay anything, for example if you’re exempt because you’re disabled?

Start now
Before you start

You can be fined up to £1,000 if you do not renew your vehicle tax.
