Do YOU know about the tax disc changes?
Windscreen decoration news now, and did YOU know that tax discs are set to be abolished on October 1? We spoke about it all the way back in 2012, but according to a survey on money.co.uk, only half of drivers questioned were aware of the changes.
You will still have to pay your vehicle tax, but now police cameras will be automatically check number plates and robots will establish if the tax has been paid.
The tax disc has spent 93 years on vehicle's windscreens - well, in six or 12 months bursts anyway. Not the same one handed down.
Motorists will need to be aware of impending tax disc changes or face a £1,000 fine as well as potential penalty charges against a car they no longer own.
"Helpfully", the DVLA has yet to start adding warnings to tax renewal reminders, but THEY'VE MADE A FILM!
The new rules will demand used car sellers to inform the DVLA of the change of ownership. HPI provider, hpicheck.com, has warned those caught unaware could face fines and charges.
Meanwhile for used car buyers, the vehicle tax will no longer be transferred while those selling can claw back unused tax.
So yes, get aware.
