Tax Disc Abolition – What’s The Problem?

After 93 years, the paper tax disc, first issued on 1 January 1921, will no longer be issued and required to be displayed on a vehicle windscreen. Systems change for good reason.

Motorists and businesses can now spread the cost of payment which can only help fleet operators and small businesses with large vehicle and administration overheads.  There will be no handling fees for annual payments just a small surcharge of 5% of vehicle tax for biannual and monthly payments. This is half of the 10% surcharge that is currently applied to 6 monthly tax discs.

DVLA Digital Record

The DVLA has a digital record of who has and has not paid; a paper tax disc is no longer necessary as proof of payment. Enforcement will come in the form of Automatic Number Plate Readers and the police accessing DVLA records via the police national computer.

We live in a forward-thinking, environmentally aware, technology-embracing society.  Let’s embrace the change.
