    New Laws for Car Tax

    Just read the renewal notice and it states that you are now allowed 5 days after the first day to tax you car
    since 1st sept 2008 you can legally keep your vehicle on the road without a tax disc displayed for up to 5 days provided you have renewed by phone or online, you tax disc will be sent to you within 5 working days by 1st class post.
    My sister just told me this so I thiought I would post, it may help someone, dont know if I can tax my car now online as due today but I will try and post back

    The 5 days grace doesn't apply to you. It clearly states you have to tax it online BEFORE the old one runs out

    Interesting and worth remembering thanks for posting x x

    Thankyou for posting this, I taxed my car online yesterday as it was due for renewal today plus I couldn't find my mot doc. I was panicking thinking I haven't got a new tax disc to display and was gonna phone the dvla tommorrow, so u have saved me a job and saved me the cost of a phone call. thanks rep left!
