Goodbye Tax Disc

From 1 October 2014, the paper tax disc will no longer need to be displayed in the vehicle windscreen and will no longer be issued from this date. Customers with a Northern Ireland address will still need to display their MoT disc.

The vehicle will still need to be taxed to drive or keep it on the road and the DVLA will still send renewal reminders when vehicle taxes are due to expire. This applies to all types of vehicles including those that are exempt from payment of vehicle tax.

This also affects the buying and selling of a vehicle after 1 October 2014. The tax will no longer be transferred with the vehicle and the new owner will need to get new tax before the vehicle can be used. The seller will automatically get a refund for any full calendar months left on the vehicle tax after the DVLA is notified of the sale. Tax can still be bought in the usual ways; online, by phone or at a Post Office® branch and the option to pay by direct debit will also be introduced.
