Updates and advice on abolition of the vehicle tax disc

Posted on


From 1st October 2014, the paper tax disc will no longer need to be displayed on a vehicle.

Vehicle tax changesIf you have a tax disc with any months left to run after this date, then it can be removed from the vehicle and destroyed. 

What this means to you

To drive or keep a vehicle on the road you will still need to get vehicle tax and DVLA will still send you a V11 or V85/1 renewal reminder when your vehicle tax is due to expire. This applies to all types of vehicles including those that are exempt from payment of vehicle tax or have a nil rate of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED).

In brief you still have to pay, however you will not get a piece of paper to prove you’ve done it.

On the 1st October, the paper tax disc will be axed after 93 years on our windscreens and in a holder/tube on our motorbikes to be replaced with an electronic system and never again will the words 'It's in the post officer' have any meaning!
