The Department for Transport does not monitor foreign registered vehicles as they enter or leave the UK.

The DVLA is working in co-operation with the UK Border Force (UKBF), the police and local authorities to ensure that there are robust enforcement processes to deal with vehicle keepers who refuse to comply with UK registration and licensing rules. This work includes research into how the DVLA and the police can utilise the data that UKBF gathers on vehicles entering and leaving UK ports.
