As of October 2014 you will no longer get a paper tax disk, it's quick and easy to check online so no problem is there?
In this move they are also bringing in a new rule that will stop the tax disk staying with the vehical during all of the some 7 million privet sales.  The vendor will have to claime back their remaining tax and the new owner will have to re-tax the car.  All well and good you say, they will have to have insurance to get the tax but there are several problems here......

1 When you take out insurance it can take upto 5 days for your insurance to show up on the national database, you will not be able to get a licence online untill you appear on this database.
2 When you sell a car you can only claim back the whole months remaining and when you purchase a car you have to pay for tax to the begining of the month this means if the average road fund is £200 the DVLA will be raking in an extra £117 million pounds a year in TAX.  Seeing as it's the lower paid people that tend to purchase and sell cars privetly it's them that will be affected by the tax the most!

    What you seem to keep missing, is that standards matter. You are quite rightly trying to communicate your concerns, but we need to understand exactly what you are saying. Poor spelling and grammar can completely change the meaning of a sentence. So not having a go at you, merely suggesting that you might be misunderstood.

    Again NUMPTIES only care about spelling and not the fact that they are going to get ripped off again and charged another some £117m in tax a year!
