Goodbye To The Tax Disc From October 1st 2014

13 August 2014

tax

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.

FURTHER INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND HERE

What do you think? Will this make things easier for motorists?

    That's amazing! Specifically the pay by direct debit bit! I'm thrilled :)
  • caz501
    just got mine too oh well I will do it next year
  • Elysiandream
    I agree it's all a great idea but why can't they do it in September :( I'm gonna have to pay for 6 months outright and wait to start direct debit.
  • angelwildstar
    It's a great idea but why not do it from September for them getting new cars instead of having one for a month than taking it out just a waste of paper. I'm loving the idea of direct debit too so if your post gets lost and you forget when it's due at least it's going to be paid
  • ajbaby
    I think it's a great idea long time coming it will help so many people unable to pay 12 months upfront and help prevent the struggle to pay at Christmas as we all know right now it's hard to pay for both on a low income October can't come quick enough (_;)
  • iratedriver
    Imagine the amount of work people in the dvla will have to suffer now processing all refunds etc every time a car gets sold as the tax has to be refunded to previous owner then instantly the new owner then has to go buy tax for it when it was already taxed say 10 minutes before. will be huge workload for staff and people like cops and traffic wardens having to check up each car when a disc would be in view.what if their computers arent up to date.innocent cars will be fined or towed . should have just stuck with making the payments easier and kept the disc.or do away with tax altogether
  • TraceyTT
    Finally a pay monthly option. I think it will lead to less untaxed and uninsured vehicles xx
  • Mowbz
    Why can't we have the option to tax a car for a week or a month? Or claim back money to the nearest day for a refund? Since this system is fully automated, the only reason this option is not given is because extra revenue can be collected. If a car changes hands in the middle of a month, the seller has to pay the full month road tax (or whatever you like to call it) and the buyer also pays for the full month. This is a huge con if you ask me!

  • Gasgas
    So if you sell your car to someone on the 5th of the month you could loose 25 days of the refund. Is this correct?
  • BigKrisBartie
    Loada pish that tax that's on a vehicle can't be transferred why is that.
  • Snorval
    I like this idea but its obviously a way to cut costs which is also good. I just hope that the money is better spent improving the condition of some of the roads. Aberdeen city is now nicknamed Pot Hole City. Get it sorted out city council!!
  • Luinz
    Love the pay monthly option. Dowside is not being able to physically see the tax on possible nuisence vehicles.
  • elainemorganwest
    direct debit is a great idea wish they had it years ago wen i was more for tax im only £30 a year now.suppose no discs will save money
  • jaane
    Not keen on the non transferable tax.
  • Llin
    defo a brill idea -esp the pay monthly- i love it!
  • Staffies7
    Fantastic news!!!
  • scottishscot
    Yaeh a now don't have a physical reminder of my wasted money on my wind shield as I avoid the massive pot holes :)
  • 1405mirren
    about time strugled to find cash but now can pay by instllments :-):-)
  • Spindle12
    I think that when looking to buy a gym car you factor in the cost of tax'ing the vehicle so to buy a vehicle that has no tax will be an addition cost to a buyer. Also I don't think halfords will be happy they'll have to remove the tax disc holder section
  • Tegtam
    This is much better because of the direct debit
  • tyse
    Stupid idea what was wrong with the old way exactly? how many people are going to be trying to get hold of the dvla on a daily basis (its already a complete nightmare to get hold of them)! Will cause a lot of hassle for millions trying to get the money back for tax discs and i wonder how long it will take to recieve your refund with them being massively understaffed! FAIL!
  • vonh1
    My road tax is due on the 30th sept will I have the option to pay my tax monthly
  • vipprotector
    Seems like a great idea on the face of it. Yes, the pay monthly by DD is a good move. Just one question though, why is the tax not transferable on sale of a vehicle. Surely the tax is on the vehicle, not the person, so if the vehicle is sold, all DVLA have to do is amend their records. They have to do it anyway, to refund the seller. I am sure if I am being a bit thick here, someone will tell me.
  • david77
    Yip but it not being able to transfer with the car will make it a night mare for selling.dont see the point in it
  • blackboots
    my tax is due in september will i still get a tax disc and do i still have to display it.
  • Layton01
    This is fantastic lets hope the electronic system doesn't go haywire lol. Brill news though
  • Shaz0
    Pay monthly, best idea ever.
  • kpowell1965
    I think its a good idea especially pay monthly but I still think that you should be taxed for the mileage you do..there's loads of elderly people that only use there car 1/2 times a week but they pay the same tax as taxi drivers or sales reps that do 100s of miles weekly let's hope for the future..
  • busman770
    Keep the transfer of tax the same ie buying and selling lining there own pockets a per usual
  • mike1982a
    Direct debit may be a good idea but do you realise u have to pay extra for this option....I'm sure I read theit is a 5% charge
  • Richy1
    They have this system in Norway, its to stop kids bullying, Saying things like You cant afford the tax for your car! So its a Yearly fee you can Only pay by direct Debit, the New owner has Tax until January, Thats when all cars are due to pay the Tax, If you bought it in December You have to pay the Road tax for the next year in January if you buy a new car best to buy it in January or you could pay more all car taxes are due from January... One Thing they should do in the Uk that they have Here is to open a DVLC in every major City... Share the load and you can go direct to your local office Pop in register your car, get new plates, Update your driving licence, basically everything you need in each City.... get your Docs done in a few hours, pass your test and get your licence within the hour!!!! Just a Thought!
  • livigal
    Is this the same for disability people
  • Chachred
    Brilliant!!!! Best news I've heard all month
  • Page2red
    I personally think it's great, we always complain about taxing having to have reminder etc at counter for tax disc, more jobs created for dvla, lees people on the streets and yeah fair enough a nightmare selling a car with no tax, but everyone will be in the same boat so no tax..... No problem! It's better for monthly too as my tax is due at same time as mot so it helps to spread the cost! And no I don't work for dvla haha I'm a mobile hairdresser so spend a lot if time in my car!
  • RSONE
    Should be put on fuel. Those that use most pay most and no one can avoid it...
  • dicky12
    I thinks its a joke, it going to make it so complicated for alot of people especially for people like me who like to change change there vehicles.

I am sure if I am being a bit thick here, someone will tell me.
    I expect it is due to the fact of the DD payments, which when you sell the vehicle you will obviously stop the DD's coming from your bank account, so the tax would no longer be valid anyway after the month the last payment was made! So in essence you aren't actually buying 6mths or 12mths, that just determines your monthly cost, it becomes more a PAYG style way of taxing your vehicle, you sell it, you stop payments, and new owner starts theirs!

    you wont be able to tax your new vehicle if you dont have insurance in place the old way you had people driving around for upto a year in taxed cars without insurance
  • issigonis
    but paying by DD you pay more tax
  • rearadmiral1
    So if you sell your car to someone on the 5th of the month you could loose 25 days of the refund. Is this correct?
    That was already the case anyway, you only got refunds for full months left on tax disc.
  • rearadmiral1

    This was already the case anyway. You only get a refund for every full month left on the tax disc.
  • Davedma
    Not being able to transfer it is just a money making scam not only will they collect twice for the month the vehicle is sold but the revenue in fines and towing costs for untaxed vehicles will also get a huge boost as you won't even be able to drive your new car home due to the tax from the seller not be valid once its sold to you! I'm also guessing that if you pay by monthly direct debit it will be in the form of a loan like insurance company's do to squeeze every last penny out of the people who are already struggling to pay for it!
  • Jimheather
    Hi what happens if you don't have a email to sent it to like my dad can he use the same email as me thanks
  • Kylaok
    They won't do it in September in case the system doesn't work and all those new cars won't be taxed just like all the other millions of pounds they waste on computer systems that don't work
  • lumsdph
    whats to stop people putting someone elses number plates on their car same make and model??
  • Jacub
    I think this is a bad idea it's going to make are life hard for us car traders that means for us to be able to tax a car going to have to be in are name just think it's not going to work going to be a lot more complicated
  • Laurababez
    Stupid idea, if it's not broke don't try n fix it, the DD is the only goid part of that idea, so now with no tax disk no one knows if ur cat is taxed or not, which means more police stops, nightmare if ur buying a car too, dont see why the tax isn't transferable, the car is taxed, so of you buy a car on the 20th of the month u'll be payin for a full month when you shouldn't need to
  • Bappi
    Its good to have the 12 month direct debit payment plan but im not takin my disc out my window until its run out. Just in case
  • sikici
    **** hot bro
  • rabo87
    The point is too make more money , there hoping by non displayable tax will lead to folk chancing it without tax and they get caught also make money from the tax that people lose from refundable tax , it's all planned , then if people miss any direct debits there will be a charge ect . Think about it
  • Justbychance
    Just make sure you have money in your account when DD due or your vehicle could be seized for not having tax. If you can manage your account that well why can't you plan to have enough cash to pay when due every 6 months? Pathetic idea will cause more problems than it solves.
  • steveb101
    So if you sell your car on the, lets say 5th of the month you lose the remainder of that month, and then the person who buys it has to tax it, therefore paying again for the remainder of that month, that has already been payed for by the previous keeper, thus paying twice for one months tax with no option? Correct me if I'm wrong. Beforehand you could incorporated the tax with the car when either buying or selling.
  • deeksyboy
    Guessing that paying monthly by direct debit will end up costing more. Similar to 6 months costing more than a year's tax at present.
  • bigj63

    im not a taxi driver or rep but taxi drivers pay tax on what they earn why should they be hammered for more money the guys do long hours to make a living think again
  • jon356
    Will the traffic wardens be aware of this...because these departments don't bother talking to each other as normal. I don't wish to be slapped with a ticket for not displaying a tax disk :@
  • Diesel2000
    It's ridiculous that you can no longer sell a taxed vehicle when the rule comes in. Yes they will refund the vehicle seller the remaining tax but I bet anything you like there is an administration charge meaning yet another stealth tax for the motorist and extra cost for anyone looking to buy a car.
  • KD9442
    So if someone sells their car with 12 months tax but are paying it monthly, and then cancel it once it's sold to you without telling you, is there any way of knowing this as the buyer and what could you do?? I think the system we currently have is fine, but should of allowed tax discs of a shorter time period to be bought. We all managed fine afterall
  • wilsyxt
    good and bad idea pay monthly great but when selling you lose out on value cause no tax stupid.? why:(
  • Shaz50
    Good idea but let's hope they don't do what insurance companies do and charge interest on monthly payments
  • coadhall

    the tax disc is reliant on an MOT if required and valid insurance. Insurance is not tied to the car but the owner/driver. The old system could allow an uninsured driver to pass through unless ANPR was used.
  • buckleyc
    In simple terms the non transferable tax is to stop insurance dodgers. When you buy a car it has to be insured to tax it. This will be a logistics nightmare and in my opinion, as a mechanic and trader, will not work. You buy a car or bike and can't drive it cos it's not taxed. A stupid idea.
  • leewilson
    my tax is due in september will i still get a tax disc and do i still have to display it.
    no you dont need to display it just destroy it
  • kazababe99
    What about car dealers and small car traders, it will prove a nightmare for them selling their cars. People want to see a paper M.O.T and a paper Tax Disc when they view a car and if they are not present then the customer will have no confidence in buying. Tax Discs should be left on the car and transferrable to the new owner as they are now. Traders do not have the log book in their name, so how do they get the refund of tax, as Traders can road tax a car without putting another owner on the log book. This process will slow down sales for Traders as they will have to wait for a log book which takes 6 - 8 weeks at the moment and this puts another owner on the log book, which customers do not like. There are endless problems with the new system. What is wrong with the system as it is, as it is straight forward.
  • Michael1982
    I bet the price of the tax won't come down either no more paper I bet we get charged more
  • martin095
    **** idea of not letting next owner not having it taxed
  • chris131
    wat happens wen ya buy a car from a dealer tho will u be able ta get the tax aswell ?
  • Papakilo
    If you borrow someones car at the mo, you take on board that the car is MOT'd or not, now you have to risk that it's taxed, as no visible clur to work on. Keep the tax disc and bring on the monthly DD.
  • donnyo
    Well...this suits me and most of the population who use internet and have email accounts. But what about certain large groups of people who do not abide by the law...and will use not being literate - or not having a computer - to avoid paying the tax. Just unfair that these people who already live above the law and claim benefits whilst working etc - will be even better off. I expect they are rejoicing at this latest decision.
  • borisinsurrey
    Maybe this will speed things up, I've been waiting over a week to get my tax disc, it takes so so long, 4 -6 weeks to get a log book- too slow, infarct a joke for 2014,
  • Chlohan
    What about people who don't have computers. How will they get notified of their renewal.
  • freeman1960
    i don't have a computer i don't want a computer forcing me to have one is violating my rightsso how will i tax my car without a computer
  • Dawnee
    So Happy about about DD payments, Whichever month they start it someone will moan coz they missed out (6 months) will fly by
  • tri54321
    it going to f..k up
  • davecur
    If you buy a car you have to tax it from 1st of the month. When you sell a car they will only refund you full months so they will make money from the buyer and seller.
  • firepower65
    Unlucky is all i can say
  • Leejones250
    Load of rubbish. Keep the old system. So wen you buy a car your not slowed to drive it home because it ain't taxed
  • ni55an23
    Finally a pay monthly option. I think it will lead to less untaxed and uninsured vehicles xx
    what it doesn't say is ....fo you pay extra for paying monthly ?????
  • tjp1252
    Won't stop the people that don't tax there car's as there is not a thing the police do now
  • nd2214
    I can't see monthly direct debit options it says 6 months or 12 months so you pay 6 or 12 months in one go not a monthly figure?
  • Mauldon7
    Depends, are they going to charge people more for paying monthly?!
  • drelmetbrown
    just another step to destroy the post office
  • snoopynose
    I have just put on six months to my car,my refund for my old car has been sent twice now,cos dvla system don't run properly,so cant see how its going to be better,when they are slow at dealing with things now,and i bet its another way for the government to make money from the tax payer,as everyone who opts for dd monthly they collect all the interest on it ,roll on a free scotland
  • Danny30
    Just another way they can make more money from you! When a car is sold they'll end up with to lots payed for in a month. Monthly payments will help some people out. But why fix something that's not broke. This way has worked fine since 1921 or whenever it was.
  • Jzee89kd12
    I wonder if intrest is going to be added if you pay monthly ?????
  • Shammirela
    I agree with most of it. But with regards to the refund part, that would have to be done on a pro-rata basis otherwise it will be seen as an additional tax upon a tax.
  • Fran732
    What if you are buying a used car privately? Many buyers could find themselves unable to drive away the car that they have just bought unless the transfer of tax is instant. Is it going to be instant?
  • Kiara165
    Ok it all sounds good with the pay monthly but say you go to view a car at 7 in the evening, you decide to buy it, how on earth can you tax it before you drive away, will there be an automated system you can call to do it over the phone... I don't see why it's not transferable, just another way of DVLA gaining extra money....
  • AnnieC58
    Another nail in the PO coffin... the 'use it or lose it' slogan is slowly losing its impact if you're losing things to use it for :-\ I do like the nonthly DD option though... makes it easier for those on low income or 0 hour contracts.
  • chriswest
    Seeing as that is less paper work 2 be done they should lower the price of the tax then but I bet they dont
  • Ryan420
    Yip but it not being able to transfer with the car will make it a night mare for selling.dont see the point in it
    The point of not being able to transfer your Tax disc is purely about money. When you "cash in" a Tax disc you don't get the full amount back., multiply that by a few thousand and there is big money to be made. Just another form of revenue from motorists :(
  • anthonymorris
    what about motorcycles do motorcycles need to display a tax disk from 1st October 2014
  • bigbird57
    I think it's a bad idea, not everyone has internet access, so how will they manage?

  • Tarek12
    Don't get it the player is John. John the player. What I mint is that the end of the day you still pay the tax.! I do work in central London and the road are horrible. Bumps... Really in bad condition. but they still charing you a lots of money in to of your insurance and m.o.t.... Instead putting costs down will help drives. For me didn't work sorry dvla try anther way.
  • Keefehst
    Great idea and good for me as it ends in October!
  • KARENORAM
    This sounds great, especially paying it monthly rather than 6 monthly or annually.
  • LucyDixon
    IT'S A SCAM!!!!
  • scotteee
    Relying on people to not bother with refunding their old tax....money making scammers as ever
  • exdvastaff
    Unemployment increase. I used to work in motor tax in northern ireland and the current government is screwing everyone over here. Direct debit sounds good but believe me, if something sounds too good to be true, then it usually is. This is going to generate problems for buyers and sellers alike. People didnt believe me when i told them swansea would be a nightmare to deal with, turns out i was right. Cutting costs my balls, the government are money grabbing ****. I appreciate it can be hard for people to pay 12 months tax at once, but it works out cheaper. 12x1 month direct debits will work out more expensive than 1x12 month tax. Why give the government more money? Arent they getting enough off hard working people? Meanwhile their days "work" includes ball scratching and claiming **** expenses. **** i sound bitter lol up the revolution :-)
  • jodear2882
    So if I choose to buy 12 months tax at end of October when my car tax is next due, will I be able to pay £10 a month over the 12 months?
  • bilsbyjay
    Hey Big Brother. This new tax thing is all well and good. You guys trying to keep us in check and making sure we do things right. You cant do things right yourselves yet.. I sold a car 3 weeks ago and sent v5 off the same day and today i got a tax reminder. Practice what you preach and maybe we will start to follow suit.
  • djf01
    It will mean that the DVLA will need to be kept up-to-date with correct address details otherwise the reminder will go astray. Also, without a tax disc on the screen there is no quick and easy way to check when your tax disc is due to be renewed. Will it mean that people will not bother with a tax disc and take the chance that they will not be pulled over by the police? Be aware that even if you pay £0 tax on your car you still need to renew your tax disc each year and that you can be fined if you don't.
  • bob2947m
    Another DVLA con. When you sell your car you will only be entitled to a refund from the start of the following month and the buyer will have to tax from the beginning of the current month so double tax for that month will be paid and the buyer cannot take the car onto the road until the car is registered and taxed to them personally so can't just drive it home after purchase. If you pick the car up on a trailer remember to cover the number plates which is good advice under current rules, because police ANPR cameras report direct to DVLA all plates read. If your vehicle is SORNed on a trailer IE. not on the road going for repair etc, the police can see there is no offence but DVLA will take the report as being on the road and you will be treated as using it unless you prove otherwise and DVLA don't make that easy.
  • kazza1564
    has anyone realised we might be paying more this way , surely the admin are NOT going to do the work for nothing, bet the road tax goes up by paying monthly,
  • okenora
    you cannot transfer the tax as there is no proof of how much tax is valid on the car and no guarantee that the previous owner will make any outstanding payments or that they will not cash in the tax after the sale. Still can't see why it can't be calculated daily rather than monthly though, it does seem to be a "scam" to raise a few extra pounds of revenue.
  • Adamjenkins
    All the road tax is a load of rubbish why not just get rid of the whole road tax and just charge a few pence more on fuel that way people who use the road more will be paying more tax say for instance someone who owns a bmw m3 e92 and does 5000 miles a year he pays £475 for 12 months tax but if you own a bmw 118d you can do 20,000 miles a year and pay £30 a year is that really fair? I know it's all to with emissions but your emission really depends on the amount of miles a year you do and the type of driving! This government sucks!
  • monkeymadgik
    Tax is a rip off i pay my tax in the bolton area and the roads are a waste of time unless you drive an off road vechicle . I mot'ed insured and taxed 3 of my vechicle last year only to be able to use them for about a month .the roads are in such a bad state of repair that it has caused damage to the suspension on all 3 vehicle and guess what i have to pay for the damage myself so why pay tax in bolton to repair the roads when they are not repairing the roads . When i rung up to find out why all the roads are in a bad state of repair they told me that there is not enough money in the kitty to repair the roads . So why pay tax and mot to drive on goat tracks might as well buy a motorcross bike or an off road quad as they cope with the roads a lot better . SICK TO DEAF OF BEING RIPPED OFF if everyone stood up to the goverment we would not be getting ripped off any more
  • passanger
    That's amazing! Specifically the pay by direct debit bit! I'm thrilled :)
    and we can now get for one month not only 6 or 12 month very like it :)
  • Dyl01
    Guaranteed private car sales will fall and people will part ex more now less hastle and sounds better that garage will be able to give you 6/12 months free tax money making scam again
  • Marv777
    Car tax is a waste of our money - the percentage of what we pay that goes into administering the whole thing is significant and could be saved if they simply added this to fuel tax. That way those cars that use more fuel will pay more tax and foreigners over here will pay fuel tax like we do when we drive abroad!
  • Hspchsk1
    Brilliant idea about monthly payment but it doesn't say if it will cost anymore to do so also think there should be something to put in window to say ur car is tax even if it's just a barcode that can be scanned

    mine runs out end of September so on the first i can set it up for a month online. perfect :)

    Why can't we have the option to tax a car for a week or a month? Or claim back money to the nearest day for a refund? Since this system is fully automated, the only reason this option is not given is because extra revenue can be collected. If a car changes hands in the middle of a month, the seller has to pay the full month road tax (or whatever you like to call it) and the buyer also pays for the full month. This is a huge con if you ask me!
    Just another big rip off any way they can to screw the public

    It so when the car is sold they get 2 months tax for the month it's sold you don't think they gona make it to suit you without them getting double money do you

    Can you still pay for your road tax online

    The direct debit is a grill idea but seeing as the new law comes in on the 1st October why is this option only available after 1st November??? I know DD 's take time to set up but seeing as reminders are sent approx 3 weeks before tax is due why is it not possible. My tax is due 31st October so I've got to pay in full all for the sake of one day!!!!!

    I don't see why there's a need to lose the disc as then you know when to pay. Also electronic systems are famous for crashing so this is just going to make it more annoying to get hold of dvla. What about those without email addresses? I say keep the disc and let people pay by dd monthly if they wish. Wasting money.

    But will the monthly DD work out more expensive? Currently the 6 months is more than half of the 12 months, so will the monthly be even more?

    My car tax is nil anyway so doesn't affect me but the monthly direct debit sounds like a good idea.

    Is this the same for disability people

  • carowner
    Yip but it not being able to transfer with the car will make it a night mare for selling.dont see the point in it
    Simple, when you sell it, you get whole months refunded and the new owner has to tax from the start of the month of purchase. Think how much extra revenue the Government make on that. When you could transfer tax, the Govt wasn't getting paid twice for the tax.
