    Death of the tax disc.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 20 Jun 2016, 11:56 am

    Many do not know that now that we do not have any "paper" proof that we have paid our, ( Vehicle Excise Duty, or VED ), taxation via the car-window-displayed tax disc, that VED is no longer transferrable.

    It used to be easy just to leave the tax disc on the car if it is sold or traded in and the unused portion of this tax would then transfer to the new owner of the car.

    Now, if there is any time left on the VED of your car the unused portion of this tax can be easily refunded at the DVLA website. HERE

    Now that number-plate scanning technology via ( Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) devices ), has improved markedly, the plate on your car will be scanned just about every time that you go out on the road, and if the computer that does the scanning does not show that your VED is up to date, you will get a warning from the DVLA and then a visit from the police.

    Yes, I was kind of confused by this after they did away with the tax disc.

    I suppose that after we have been doing it that way for a while we will get used to it.

    It's actually quite straight forward and easy for people who have an internet-connected computer, but for those that do not have access to such a machine it becomes impossible to do that job.
