DVLA website GOES TITSUP on day paper car tax discs retire

Ashley Ward

It doesn't seem to be any more onerous than the already existing requirement of having to buy insurance for the car you've just bought.

You can tax the car online or on a 24hr phone line using a number off the new keeper supplement (so you can do that immediately) and, assuming the car was already insured, then even if the MID is a bit tardy at being updated it should still go through fine.

I may have misunderstood the new process somewhere though.

And as for the part-month thing, seriously - you're losing a few quid when you sell a car (which is probably only average about every 3 years) - it's not really a big deal.
