DVLA TAX DISC UPDATEBack

TaxDiscDVLA Q & A regarding interim Tax Disc as we get closer to NO-DISC Day

What is happening on the 1st of October?

From 1st October 2014 the vehicle tax disc is being abolished, after that date you will no longer need to display a tax disc on any vehicle or motorcycle.

Why are some discs now different?

The paper used to print your tax disc is different to that used previously and there are no perforations. The DVLA is running down its pre-existing stock to ensure there is no wastage. To give value for money to the tax payer we have not replenished our stock for this short period but decided to print these discs in-house until 1st October 2014.

As the rules are changing from 1st October do I have to display it now?

Yes – You’ll need to display a valid tax disc in your vehicle until 1st October 2014.

As this disc differs from previous ones will it be recognised by the Police and other enforcement authorities? The DVLA have told the police and other enforcement authorities that we have issued these discs however the paper disc is no longer relied upon to check if a vehicle is taxed or not.

Will I be able to transfer my tax after 1st October 2014?

No, the new rules being introduced on 1st October will mean that if you are selling a vehicle or motorcycle, the tax is no longer transferred. The buyer will need to tax it before they use it. When you sell your vehicle you will not need to apply for a refund, DVLA will automatically issue you with a refund of any full months of VED remaining, once you have notified DVLA that you are no longer the registered keeper.

Where can I find out more information about the changes?
