Are you ready for the DVLA tax disc changes?

Are you  ready for the DVLA tax disc changes?
With just a week until the UK says goodbye to the tax disc, it’s vital that you are up to scratch with the new rules coming into effect on the 1 October.  If not, you could face fines up to £1,000.

Here is a brief overview of how the changes will affect you:

  • Any remaining tax on a car will not be transferable.
  • Anyone caught driving an un-taxed vehicle will face an on-the-spot fine.
  • People who sell a vehicle after 1 October and have notified the DVLA will get a refund for any full calendar months left on the vehicle tax.
  • People who buy a vehicle can tax it, using the New Keeper Supplement (V5C/2) on the vehicle registration certificate (V5C).  This can be done via the DVLA’s automated service – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Here are the contact details you will need:
