Number Of Untaxed UK Vehicles Hits Record High The number of untaxed vehicles on the UK's roads more than doubled between 2013 and 2015, with the annual cost of vehicle excise duty evasion (VED) estimated at GBP80m (USD120.3m). According to the latest Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) survey data, this figure is higher than in any year since at least 2007 and equates to approximately 1.4 percent of the total VED due.
