Part exchange: road tax? - PJM at 19
No grief please, but i have agreed to part exchange my car for a new one.
Question: when i drop off the old car, can I take out the tax disc for a refund (there is nothing on the paperwork to say i have agreed to pass over the tax)?

Keep it.

Car dealers regard it as a nice little perk as most people tend to feel embarrassed if they remove it. You've paid for it and you can bet that the dealership won't give you six or 12 months' road tax.

There's already been a thread on this subject a few months ago.

The tax disc isn't part of the car. It's yours. It just happens that the law says you have to display it on the windscreen. Remove it just as you would anything else which is not part of the car. The dealer will expect you to.

It wouldn't be thr first time the dealer insisted on it staying in the car. You have no obligation to leave it in there.

How do you get a refund of the balance remaining?

DVLA website states:

How do I apply for a refund on my tax disc?

You should return your tax disc with a completed form V14 available from a Post Office or DVLA Local Office. If your tax disc has been lost/ stolen you can complete form V33 which is available from your nearest DVLA Local Office. The application should be sent to Refunds Section DVLA Swansea, SA99 1AL. Refund applications must be in the post by the last day of the month to receive a refund for that particular month - only full months remaining will be refunded. Your refund should be issued in 3 weeks, but in certain circumstances you will need to allow up to 6 weeks.

Keep it.


My local dealer insists it stays with the car. No mention of it being included in the trade in price though.
