Tax Disks

It'll be simple. No one will ever sell a car with tax already on it. Make sure you check it has an MOT and you could get it taxed from your mobile!

If they put it on fuel there'd be several thousand DVLA staff with extra time on their hands.

 

There again, would anyone be able to tell the difference.

The only benefit to the new system is that we can finally move on from tax being from the 1st of the month.  Surely the new system will mean you can tax your car from any date?  ie tax from 7th December 2013 to 6th December 2014

We can, but will we?

Which is more likely...

(a) The new system is totally flexible, refunds to the previous owner at a daily rate, and allows the new owner to tax the car from the collection date onwards.

OR

(b) the previous owner gets a refund from the end of the month in which the sale is made but the new owner has to tax it from the start of the month in which he collects it...

:coffee:

1st October next year (2014).

 

Is there another 'next year' that the rest of us have missed?

Ah ye of such lack of foresight.  I posted it like that so if someone dropped into this in January and didn't look at the post date they'd know, as well as the relevance of it today.+++

Well, the plans are being set out - Telegraph article

 

So, surprise surprise, it does indeed look like DVLA will collect an extra month of road tax every time a car is sold.  Anyone who is surprised, report to my office for a slap.

I intend to leave my expired disc in the window!

Purely because it makes me feel like a rebel, even though the tax is all up to date.

Dont be surprised if that is considered an offence from 1st October, it will probably be somewhere in the small print, and carry an accompanying monetary fine

 

Apparently the car cloners are thrilled with this new law, as all you need now are a set of number plates and no tax disc now, as the APNR system cannot register or flag up two vehicles with the same number plate being on the road on the same day, and not even if registered at the same time

anything for the 'law' to get extra revenue- making something look better than it is... already they will save millions on paper.... then fine people for displaying out of date tax disks.

Having put a brand new one in yesterday I shall continue to display mine for the next 12 months (minus a day). It somehow seems like a waste not to.
