Amazon’s flagship AI will be able to notify drivers about dates for MOTs and vehicle tax.
The new DVLA Alexa skill allows vehicle owners to check the roadworthiness of their cars on their Amazon Echo devices.
The DVLA has been using the Alexa Skills Kit, which allows users to teach their Echo new capabilities. Users can enable the DVLA Vehicle Enquiry skill on the Echo App, to check the roadworthiness of vehicles, by reading a registration plate aloud to an Echo.
Oliver Morley, DVLA’s Chief Executive said: “We’re really excited about trialling an innovative skill that gives customers access to information about their vehicles. Providing choice in how people use our services is important to DVLA and by trialling this skill we are giving customers another way to get information quickly and easily – helping them to keep on top of their vehicle tax.
“This is another example of how we are always looking to test new ways of providing digital services to make things simpler and better for the UK’s motorists.”
