Up to 250,000 grey fleet vehicles could be avoiding VED

Date: 18 February 2020   |   Author: Illya Verpraet

Almost a quarter of a million grey fleet vehicles may be in use without valid VED, Licence Bureau has calculated based on Department for Transport figures.

The DfT found that 1.6% of vehicles in the UK do not have valid road tax. On an estimated grey fleet of 14 million, this would amount to 224,000 vehicles.

Steve Pinchen, sales director of fleet compliance service provider Licence Bureau, said: "VED is another key aspect to operating a compliant business fleet and a legal requirement that is the responsibility of individual drivers but must also be proactively managed by businesses, in-line with their duty of care obligations." Licence Bureau's grey fleet service includes compliance checks, including that the vehicle is licensed.
