What Is The DVLA Responsible For?

In 2004, the DVLA introduced Electronic Vehicle Licensing, which allows customers to pay their car tax online and over the phone. If customers wish to do so, they can also obtain their car tax at their local Post Office branch.

DVLA Services

The DVLA offers assistance for driving services including Car Tax, Driving Licences and the issuing of Blue Badges, as well as many others. There is also help provided by the DVLA for drivers of HGVs and LGVs, such as licensing information and up to date legislation. If you are looking for further information about the Highway Code, you can also find this information through the DVLA. They also post any changes to the Highway Code in their latest published version and it is recommended that you read through this, especially if you are planning to take your driving test.

NEWS - Facebook faces backlash over users phone numbers

Mobile number supplied by users to enable two-factor authentication led to reduced privacy
Facebook was found using phone numbers initially handed over for account security for other purposes. Photograph: NurPhoto/NurPhoto via Getty Images Facebook has been accused of abusing a security feature in order to weaken user privacy, after the social network was found using phone numbers initially handed over for account safety for other purposes. The company now faces criticism that it will be harder to convince users to take other necessary security measures if users view this as an abuse of trust. Since 2011, Facebook has asked users for their phone numbers in order to enable two-factor authentication', a common account security feature that sends a text message whenever a login is attempted. The social network even required the feature to be used by the moderators of large Facebook pages, telling them they had to hand over a phone number in order to prevent the page from being easily stolen by a canny hacker. Revealed: Facebook's global lobbying against data privacy laws

But in the years after the social network first enabled two-factor authentication, Facebook began to use the phone numbers users had provided for other purposes - eventually, by September 2018, going so far as to update the language used in the prompt, adding the words and more' to the end of a statement that had previously read, simply: Add your phone number to help secure your account.' Now, users who once added their phone number for security are faced with a privacy setting that asks them who can look them up using that number. The options are 'everyone', 'friends of friends', or 'friends'. There is no choice to ban that use. Similarly, Facebook shares that information with Instagram, encouraging users to update their profiles on its sister service if they have a new phone number on the main Facebook app.

In September, Gizmodo reported that Facebook also uses that security information to target adverts: if a business has a phone number for a potential customer, they can upload that number and target that customer with adverts - even if the number is only in Facebook's systems because of the security policies. This week's wave of criticism was sparked by Jeremy Burge, the editor of emoji reference site Emojipedia. Burge, who is the moderator of Emojipedia's Facebook page, was required to enter his phone number because of the number of followers that page has, and rapidly became frustrated with the lack of privacy he was afforded as a result.

'I'm usually one to give benefit of the doubt,' Burge said, 'but it's so clear Facebook sees phone number as the way to unify its data sets (FB: email, Insta: username, WhatsApp: phone #) and this sort of thing only gives them less credibility when it comes to ever providing a number.' Others joined in the criticism. Antonio Garcia Martinez, a former Facebook product manager, said the choice was 'not just bad, it's dumb.

The fraction of users that have two-factor authentication enabled must be small, so the usage gain is minimal, while the PR risk is huge. Dumb trade-off.' In a statement, Facebook addressed some of Burge's criticisms: 'We've been hearing questions about two-factor authentication and phone number settings on Facebook. Two-factor authentication is an important security feature, and last year we added the option to set it up for your account without registering a phone number. Separately, the 'Who can look me up?' settings are not new and are not specific to two-factor authentication. 'In April 2018, we removed the ability to enter another person's phone number or email address into the Facebook search bar to help find someone's profile.

Today, the 'Who can look me up?' settings control how your phone number or email address can be used to look you up in other ways, such as when someone uploads your contact info to Facebook from their mobile phone. We appreciate the feedback we've received about these settings and will take it into account.'

Car Tax must be paid for vehicles that use and/or park on public roads within the United Kingdom. If a car is not being driven, there is still a charge, that is known as SORN.

A Tax Disc has been issued by the DVLA and then displayed in the window of the vehicle, displaying the expiry date. However, as of October 2014, a Tax Disc will no longer be issued and wont need to be displayed within a vehicle. You will still have to make sure you tax your car and will need to keep track on the status of your car tax online.

Driving Licences

A Driving Licence is required in the UK to legally operate a vehicle on public roads. A Provisional Licence is granted when learning to driving and upon passing a driving test, a full licence will be given.

Blue Badge

A Blue Badge is a permit that is given to those who meet a set of requirements relating to disability and mobility limitations. The recipient is entitled to certain parking privileges, such as being able to use disabled parking spaces and being allowed to park on single or double yellow lines for up to 3 hours.
