You never did actually have 14 days grace, that was in place if it was 'in the post'.  ???

Its a bit unfair, then. What happened to the 14 days grace you used to get with renewals? Having your car seized because the website is unavailable is a bit off.


I don't think there was ever an official 14 days grace, it was more that they didn't generally bother to pursue it.  I suppose the return argument would be that there was plenty of opportunity to renew prior to the 1st of October and of course you can still use the Post Office.

It was printed on the back of the disc years ago, 'you have 14 days from the first of the month to renew your tax, but it MUST be renewed, not placed off road' or something of that ilk. ie if you were stopped in those 14 days and did not then renew, you were done for it. We used to know all the tricks in the old days..... :ev

The website is never unavailable for a whole month.

Don't drive it unless you know it is taxed - it's the way of the world (or at least Britain)

So everyone is dodgy people driving untaxed cars around unless it's their own when it should be allowed "for a bit"?  I'm just going to set up the direct debit thing and have done with it.  Then I just need to remember to get it MOT'd.

The dd is probably why it was swamped on the 1st day. Lots of people will be pleased to be able to spread the cost and it's now a 5% rather than 10% charge.

I received a letter from the DVLA telling me that I will no longer be sent any more tax discs for my mobility scooter, but not to worry as it will still be taxed.  :co

I'm not bothered. And hes right, in my youth I would do anything and everything to wind up the establishment...I suppose we all have to grow up. Pity!

Well, I got me car. Dealer trotted off to the PO with the tear off strip and taxed it for me (I went for a coffee), came back and then eventually (don't ask) managed to get my insurance transferred to the new car so I could legally drive it home.

Kryten: Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb.

When we bought the missus car the dealer gave us a free 24 hour insurance to give us time to transfer. It was a nice touch.

The smilies clearly showed the bantering intent (and Bob stated a few posts further up that he intentionally witheld his tax), so may I strongly recommend you use your head as a suppository, and in all other respects I invite you to respond to the offer made to the plaintiff in the matter of Arkel vs Presdram, old chap.

He lives in Surrey and has no shame. Next week he'll be revealing he's really an F1A exponent. There's no end to his depravity.

Now that's just plain nasty. Retract it at once or my butler will give you a sound horsewhipping.

It is only available for vehicles that need to be taxed from 1st Nov so they have a whole month to do it. Anyone expecting to use DD to renew their tax due on 1st of Oct will have been disappointed.
