Goodbye To The Tax Disc From October 1st 2014
Are you aware that from the 1st of October, there will be no more tax discs? From that date, if you have a disc in date, you can remove it from your windscreen and destroy it. All records from that date will be held electronically. You’ll obviously still have to tax your vehicle and with no physical reminder, the DVLA will send you one by mail.
For the first time ever you’ll also be able to pay your car tax by monthly direct debit. You'll also have the option to pay six or twelve monthly by direct debit if that suits you better. This will apply to vehicles requiring tax from November 1st and you can find out more HERE
Other big changes if you’re buying or selling a car. In the past the tax has been transferable but no more. If you’re a buyer, you’ll have to tax the vehicle yourself, while if you’re the seller, you will be refunded the amount due on the remaining months but you have to notify the DVLA.
What do you think? Will this make things easier for motorists?
