  • From next year no road tax...

    ...disc. Paper tax discs for vehicles to be scrapped, the Chancellor will announce in Autumn Statement - Motoring News - Motoring - The Independent

    Also will be able to pay by direct debit which will be good.

    Both ideas are good, it almost sounds like we are in the 21st century.

      If paying by direct debit you'll have to pay an extra 5%

        This would have happened sooner if it wasn't for the police. It takes away and easy revenue stream for them, fining people for not displaying a tax disc.

          I think that's acceptable, you always pay more for insurance when paying monthly - it's not so different.

            Direct debit will be a god send.

            And not having to display will make my windscreen look neater lol.

              Strictly speaking - road tax will continue (and will increase in cost) - all they're scrapping is the paper disc, which police haven't used in years anyway.

              Slightly miffed as I enjoy having 'Historic' on the Viva and 'Nil' in the price box. I shall however continue to display a disc in the Viva just because it looks better.

                    I wonder how much extra revenue DVLA or the Police might generate when people's direct debits fail or bounce without them knowing.

                    Best news is no more tacky alloy tax disc holders

                            Thing is you always pay more for two 6 month tax discs than you do for one 12 month, so will the 5% be on 12 month price since if so it isn't to bad.

                            There current tax based system is ridiculous but that is another topic

                            - - - Updated - - -

                            Also Lee you can still pay for 12 months in one go so won't have to pay the 5%
