Road Tax

Every vehicle kept or used on a public road legally must display a valid vehicle tax disc to show that the required vehicle excise duty has been paid. As you need a valid tax disc to obtain an MOT and insurance, displaying a disc can give the police an indication that the car is insured and of a roadworthy standard. It also gives the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) an opportunity to check that the details shown on the vehicle register are up to date when the vehicle is re-taxed.

In this section, you'll find information on how to tax your vehicle, the range of different tax bands and exemptions, along with advice on how to take your car off the road.
