Tax Disc to Go
10 December 2013
The most visible change will be that from October 01st 2014 the paper tax disc, which was first issued on the first of January 1921, will no longer be issued or a need to be displayed on the vehicle windscreen.
The DVLA will allow motorists to pay monthly for a surcharge of 5%, half the level of the current 10% surcharge on 6 monthly tax discs.
The DVLA'S digital records now make the paper tax disc system unnecessary. The lastest figures confirm that over 99% of motorists tax their vehicles on time. Most on road enforcement action is now based on using Automatic Number Plate Readers.
