I am just shocked that there used to be a charge to send an email to pay a tax. Crazy.
Here’s an idea, use your Calender
or not give your email/phone details to a third party and just save the date in your calendar!
Watch out with this one. It redirects to a third party that will charge you through your mobile service provider. My dad done it and started getting charged daily. Upped the bills by about £5 a month.

Cheers, just signed up and surprised to find my MOT is in November, I was sure it was August! Better get the car serviced, had been delaying to get don't together but can't wait too long
the gov.co.uk site is so backwards, how they havent got a proper app out to help people sort out their tax and daily lives who knows.
They need to either provide proper accessible resources or drop the fines for not being able to pay/understand it
Scam artitsts, the lot of them

Cheaper than a fine if you forget.
Now that the ‘Tax Disc’ has gone, MOT awareness is harder to keep track of.
Thanks OP, of course I always wanted reminded my MOT is due 4 days before Christmas. I can’t even wait for Santa to get me one.
Use your phones calender to set 3 or 4 reminders to go off in advance and select to repeat every year. That's It. Done

How can it redirect when it is sending YOU the message rather than the other way round?
The DVLA are hilarious for what they charge people for

Says who?
Probably not a concern for most, but you can only do this for 2 cars per phone number.

You can set up reminders to email too.
