But we knew in the 70s and 80s their vans had no detection technology. Would love to have been shown around the back of one -"yes here is where we plug our ciggie lighter in, that's the most advanced technology we have"

When I search for "buy a TV licence", I don't see any references to TVLicencePlus on the first page at all.
However, when I search for "buy a TV license", they are there as the #2 entry in the ads area at the top.
Sometimes it pays to get your spelling right.

Okay, thanks for that. Very much appreciated. I guess the golden rule is not to bother answering the door if they ever come round, I don't answer my door unless I'm expecting someone so that shouldn't be a problem.
I've also seen a few videos on YouTube where they try and do someone for obstruction for not cooperating which is quite worrying.

It is NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS, if you do not watch LIVE TV or use IPLAYER you do not need to explain yourself.
Just DO NOT ENGAGE.

TV Licensing no longer have a legal power to collect data on TV sales from retailers. This was abolished in 2013.
They buy general name and address data from commercial agencies, so it is possible that you will receive letters from them addressed to you by name at some point.
Even if they begin communicating to you by name, this has no bearing on their "investigation", because having a name for your address is of no use to them without some form of accompanying evidence of evasion. That can only be obtained by talking to you. If you never talk to them, and never let them in, they cannot obtain that evidence. They do not and cannot issue summonses based purely on "paper trail" evidence.
