Just renewed my road tax but as from the first of October a tax disc is not required so I wasn't issued with one. Do you all plan to remove your tax discs on the first of October or keep them displayed until they expire?Edited by: Beevee
No you still get a reminder and can pay at the post office. You can also pay now by direct debit which continues to run until you inform DVLA that you no longer have the car. Also a road tax is no longer transferable because as soon as the DVLA are told a car has been sold they refund the tax. Edited by: Beevee
In Germany the Bavarian idiots (my personal point of view) want to introduce a road tax - which will lead to an additional sticker. We already have to have these incredible "enviromental stickers" in Germany.
Imagine Birmingham or Manchester had it's own party in the government (Bavaria has 6 Million inhabitants - NRW where I live 17 Millions ...)
The new road tax in Germany (surely on British TV too?) is no law yet - but it will come as Bavaria has it's own political party in our government and has to show some "success" at all (even if it is no-sense).
All 64 plate vehicles will have to have been taxed to be registered. The VEL system does not go live fully until 1st October so the police cannot check if a vehicle is taxed. Until that time if a vehicle isn't displaying one it will be treated as not having a valid disc in force. We were sent a message at work reminding us that until 1st October a valid disc MUST be displayed and offences dealt with accordingly. All 64 plate vehicles were issued with discs. If the dealers have interpreted the law of display wrongly then that is their problem
