Under the new monthly car tax payment option can I cancel it after a month or do I have to let it run for a minimum six months.

would imagine you could cancel as you can reclaim back if you pay up front and want to cancel

Good point, I guess the best thing to do is try it. Thanks for your reply.
It'd probably take the DVLA 6 months to realise you have cancelled.
Unless you are getting rid of the car, you will still need to tax it.
So pay for 6 or 12 months in advance, or set up a direct debit

you can cancel at anytime and receive any monies owed via cheque. best thing with dd is if you only need the car for a few weeks you can tax it for just one month (or less) and if keeping the car declare sorn to end the dd. its great for classic cars especially if you think its going to be a month of bad weather.

Not if you take the car off road, then you can SORN it, no tax to pay.

It is a classic car that I am taxing so this way would be handy to pick and choose the Months that I want to run the car.
Thanks.
