Budget 2014
In the 2014 Budget, the Chancellor announced a change to the exemption rule for payment of Vehicle Excise Duty on Classic vehicles. The new rule is that owners of vehicles which are 40 years old as at 1st April each year will be exempt from paying VED.

If you own a vehicle which was manufactured before 1st January 1960 and do not intend to obtain an MOT certificate for it, claiming exemption, you must complete a Form V112 and present it when taxing the vehicle at the Post Office.

Goodbye to the Tax Disc.

 According to H.M Government, from 1 October 2014, the paper tax disc will no longer need to be displayed on a vehicle windscreen. If you have a tax disc with any months left to run after this date, then it can be removed from the vehicle windscreen and destroyed.  

What this means to you

To drive or keep a vehicle on the road you will still need to get vehicle tax and DVLA will still send you a renewal reminder when your vehicle tax is due to expire. This applies to all types of vehicles including those that are exempt from payment of vehicle tax (e.g. Historic Vehicles).

Buying a vehicle

From 1 October, when you buy a vehicle, the vehicle tax will no longer be transferred with the vehicle. You will need to get new vehicle tax before you can use the vehicle.

You can tax the vehicle using the New Keeper Supplement (V5C/2) part of the vehicle registration certificate (V5C), online or by using our automated phone service - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit a Post Office® branch.

Selling a vehicle

If you sell a vehicle after 1 October and you have notified DVLA, you will automatically get a refund for any full calendar months left on the vehicle tax.

Vehicle tax refunds

You will no longer need to make a separate application for a refund of vehicle tax. DVLA will automatically issue a refund when a notification is received from the person named on DVLA vehicle register that the:

  • vehicle has been sold or transferred
  • vehicle has been scrapped at an Automated Treatment Facility
  • vehicle has been exported
  • vehicle has been removed from the road and the person on the vehicle register has made a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN)
  • the person on the vehicle register has changed the tax class on the vehicle to an exempt duty tax class

Checking the tax status of a vehicle

You can check the tax status of any vehicle online. This can also be used for rental vehicles

Vehicle tax status will also be checked via the numerous static and mobile ANPR cameras, by the Police and other relevant authorities.

This change may provide an opportunity to purchase historic age related Tax Discs from a specialist dealer, to display on vehicles.
