#481622 Car Tax

Posted by darthbabo on 01 May 2015 - 03:17 PM

The new rules do not have that flex in them if there is no paperwork for the vehicle or the buyer/seller doesn't have trade plates then the car cannot be driven by the new owner until they have taxed it, the vehicle must be trailered away and stored on private land if that is the case until the log book arrives for the new owner.




If the above is not done the vehicle can legally be taken by the police at the time and crushed when the logbook/new keeper suppliment cannot be produced.

I bought my focus the first week of december last year under the new rules which came in october 1st and the new owner has to tax the vehicle before they can bring it home. there are three ways to tax a car currently:


1. Post Office (check the local openning times)

2. DVLA Telephone (mon-fri only)

3. DVLA Online via home computer or moblie internet any day or time


I bought my car on a sunday and used my mobile phone to tax the car all I needed was the reg number, the code off the new keeper suppliment (should be 11 digits) and my bank card details. The process took me around five/ten minutes on a 3G connection.
