To ask Her Majesty’s Government what consideration they have given to requiring mileage to be declared at the same time as road tax is being renewed.
Mileage information can be declared voluntarily to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). Consideration has been given to making it mandatory for mileage information to be supplied when a vehicle is licensed or when there is a change of keeper. As the DVLA cannot verify the accuracy of any mileage data provided at these stages, there are no plans to make the requirement mandatory as part of the process of collecting vehicle excise duty.
Mileage information is collected however when a vehicle undergoes a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) roadworthiness test (MOT), when testers have the opportunity to record the mileage shown on the odometer.
