Displaying your tax disc

Your vehicle tax disc must be displayed on the passenger side (kerb side) of the vehicle’s windscreen. If there’s no windscreen or you have a motorcycle or sidecar, you should display the tax disc on the kerb side of the vehicle.

A current tax disc must be displayed on the vehicle it was bought for. If you buy a new tax disc before your current tax disc expires, you should not display the new one until the old one has expired. The new tax disc is only valid from the first day of the month you have taxed from. The maximum penalty for failure to display a current tax disc is £200. The tax disc can not be transferred between vehicles.

If you use the electronic vehicle licensing service or tax by post at the end of the month, there’s now an exemption for not displaying a tax disc. This exemption covers the first five working days of the month to allow time for the new disc to arrive in the post. While you are still waiting for your tax disc you will need to display your current tax disc. The exemption only applies if applications are made before the current tax disc or SORN expires.

BFN,

I always put it in the car as soon as I get it thru the post - don't want to lose it. Was under the impression that you couldn't buy the new one early unless you had a valid current one. Ah well - won't next year.

it doesn't matter what day you put it in your window .. even if the old one is still in date for the last few days of the month.
Doing it online saves teh hassle of finding your documents and then finding a PO that sells them as not all of them do.
Usually get the renewal letter around the 15th of the month but they can come as early as the 5th ( which my last one did ) i had the new one before the 15th and put it in the car straight away.
