The DVLA has produced a toolkit aimed at helping fleets to prepare for the upcoming abolishment of the photocard licence counterpart from 8 June.

The communications toolkit includes banner adverts, briefing packs, leaflets, posters and a video designed to help raise awareness of the changes.

The toolkit can be found here.

How to join the DVLA fleet scheme

Fleets wanting to join the DVLA’s fleet scheme can do so for free but need to have more than 50 vehicles in their fleet.

Fleets must provide a formal written request to join the DVLA fleet scheme along with the V5C’s of all their vehicles to be included in the scheme.

Once fleets have provided details of their fleet of vehicles to the DVLA, the organisation allocates a fleet number, which is a unique identifier for use with a company’s address.

The fleet number is added to all V5Cs of vehicles within that company’s fleet. DVLA maintain the fleet list to make sure name, address and contact details are up to date.
