How to: Add Vehicles (UK)

MileIQ’s Vehicles feature makes it easy to log the vehicle associated with your drives and the annual odometer reading for each vehicle. MileIQ’s XLS reports even offer additional functionality to consider the United Kingdom’s tiered car/van tax policies.

Whether you use one vehicle or multiple, you can add detailed information like kind, make, model, year, nickname, and annual odometer readings. You can also set a default vehicle or quickly select the appropriate vehicle directly from MileIQ’s Drive Cards.

Vehicles can be added from within the Mobile App or from the Web Dashboard and will be included in requested reports.

Mobile App

Within the Mobile App, you can add a vehicle from the Personalisation section of MileIQ or on the Drive Details section of any Drive Card.

Drive Card

If you've just taken a drive, the easiest way to add a vehicle is from the Car Icon at the bottom of the Drive Card. Simply tap the Car Icon and then 'Add New Vehicle'.


If you haven't added a vehicle yet, you'll immediately see the Vehicle Details screen. If you've already added a vehicle, you'll have the option to select between that vehicle or 'Add New Vehicle'. If you have more than one vehicle listed, you may need to click 'Show More' before you see the 'Add New Vehicle" choice.

To start, enter the kind of vehicle, whether it’s a car/van, motorcycle, or cycle. After this, there are options to enter the Make, Model, Year, Nickname, and Odometer Readings. To make the current vehicle the primary vehicle for the account, toggle the Primary Vehicle switch. When the switch is green, that vehicle is set to Primary.

Vehicles Menu

Alternatively, to add or manage vehicles in bulk, tap the 'Menu' button at the top left of the app interface. Then, select Account Settings > Personalisation > Vehicles.

If you haven't added a vehicle yet, you can add a new one directly from the card. Selecting '+ Add New' will bring up the Vehicle Details form as shown in the Drive Card section below.


If you’ve already added a vehicle from either the Drive Card or Web Dashboard, you'll have the ability to edit all existing vehicle information (except kind), add an additional vehicle, delete the existing vehicle, or toggle the Primary vehicle setting directly on the Drive Card.

Web Dashboard

To access the Vehicles feature from the Web Dashboard, you’ll first need to log in to your Web Dashboard (same email and password as the app) at

Once logged in, you should see all your drives. Like the mobile app, there are two ways to add a vehicle from the MileIQ Web Dashboard: from the Drive Details form on the back of the Drive Card or from the Vehicles section of the Settings page.

Drive Card

To quickly add a vehicle to a drive that has recently been classified, click on the row with the drive.


From the Drive Card, click on the Vehicle drop-down to expose the list of vehicles. If you haven't added a vehicle yet, you can add a new one. Simply select 'Add a vehicle...' to bring up the details form.

If you’ve already added a vehicle from the Mobile App or from the Settings page, you will see the vehicle and be able to select it from the dropdown list.


The 'Add a vehicle' form requires a Kind and allows for Make, Model, Year, and Nickname. Click 'Add' to finalize the new vehicle details. More details can be added in settings (covered below).


Vehicles Section

To add or manage vehicles in bulk, click the Settings button (next to your username/email) from the main Drive List.


From the Settings page, select the Vehicles & Odometer section and press the blue 'Add a vehicle +' button on the right to bring up the Vehicle Details form.


In the Vehicle Details menu, simply select a Kind and then optionally enter the Make, Model, Year, a Nickname, Notes, and the annual Odometer Reading for the vehicle. To adjust the primary vehicle (the one that gets assigned to your drives by default), click on the 'Primary Vehicle' toggle switch.


When you’ve finished entering your info, please remember to ‘Save Changes’ to complete the entry of your vehicle.

Once saved, your vehicle will be visible in the main vehicles menu, where you can also add additional vehicles as needed. 


Hide / Restore Vehicle

To hide a vehicle, click on the Vehicle Details page of the vehicle you want to hide. Press the ‘Hide this vehicle’ button at the bottom right.


After a vehicle is hidden, it will be listed under the Hidden Vehicle section on the Vehicles & odometer page. To restore a hidden vehicle, click on the vehicle and it will be restored.


Reporting by Vehicle

For vehicle specific reporting, click on the Reports tab, filter by date, then choose the vehicle from the "All Vehicles" drop-down menu, and click on "Report" to generate a report of that vehicle within the time period filtered.
