DVLA Explains Vehicle Tax Changes

Date: 20 Aug, 2014

The UK Government has provided an update on its planned abolition of the vehicle tax disc.

From October 1, the paper discs will no longer be issued. From November 1, drivers will be able to pay their vehicle tax online by direct debit, on an annual, six monthly or monthly basis.

Car owners with any remaining months left on their discs from October can either remove the disc from their vehicle or display it until it expires. Tax will no longer be transferable when a vehicle is sold. Instead the new owner must pay vehicle tax before they may use their new car.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) holds a digital record of taxed and untaxed vehicles. It will continue to notify drivers when the tax is up for renewal.
