Drivers may soon be able to view and update their car records online if new government plans opened up for public scrutiny today go ahead.

The scheme will mean millions of drivers can simply update their address details and any change of keeper via the internet instead of in writing to the DVLA. Car traders will be able to update information on behalf of their customers.

Roads Minister Stephen Hammond said the move would reduce bureaucracy in line with the digital age and save both time and money.

The chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Paul Everitt, said the move would help to make car ownership easier for drivers and cut the amount of administration work faced by main dealers.

It is hoped the planned scheme will help remove postal delays in the updating or records and improve the accuracy of details stored at the DVLA.

The consultation is open now and continues until 12 November 2012. More information is available at www.dft.gov.uk/dvla/consultations.aspx
