DVLNI Progress

I have received an encouraging reply from DVLNI about online payments:-

"Vehicle licensing is not a devolved matter and responsibility rests with the Department of Transport in London, which, in turn has delegated this function to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in Swansea. In carrying out vehicle licensing in Northern Ireland the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) is effectively working for the DVLA.

Unfortunately, for several reasons, DVLA have not enabled the DVA to provide a number of facilities in Northern Ireland (although these services are currently available in Great Britain).

However, I am pleased to tell you that DVLA have recently agreed that certain services should now be developed for customers in Northern Ireland. This most certainly will involve looking at providing an on-line service. It is anticipated that work will commence on this project shortly."

Well a pretty reasonable response from a govt agency!!

It seems a crazy duplication of effort to have 2 agencies. Surely if DVLA Swansea can look after England, Scotland and Wales, they can look after NI? Madness!

Expect a new system sometime around 2015 as our wonderfully streamlined and efficient NI public sector swings into action. I hear Ms. Ruane is being given the brief.
