Pay your car tax online with the DVLA
by Simon Harrison
The DVLA has developed the current payment system for car tax, hopefully meaning that payments by phone and via the World Wide Web, are that little bit easier.
Of course the major problem with car tax is users either don’t realise that it’s about to expire, or just leave it so late to renew their tax, that the disc surely won’t arrive in time for the 1st of the month, when of course the vehicle will be declared untaxed and illegal to drive by authorities.
The change by the DVLA will now see drivers able to purchase the tax disc either online or via the web, and they will then be allowed to drive their vehicle for up to 5 days while they wait for the new disc to arrive.
It must be noted that this change will not be related to those who try to purchase a tax disc after the expiry period. Those drivers will have to wait for the tax disc to arrive.
This latest change from the DVLA will have massive benefits for many tax payers, especially those who get paid on the last day of the month, as they will still have the ease and security of paying their tax efficiently via the website, phone or post.
The second change will see the DVLA introduce a rule whereby motorists can actually purchase their tax up to the 5th day of the month that their original disc expires in, compared to the 15th of the month previously, allowing individuals an extra 10 days to renew their tax.
If that’s not enough to be digesting, if you care to participate in DVLA’s electronic licensing service, then you’ll be entered into a free prize draw, to win a brand new car!
