Legislation applied from 1-9-2008 allows a bit more flexibility over taxing a car.

Now, if you re-tax on-line before the existing tax expires, even on the day it expires, you can drive the car for up to 5 days into the next month while you wait for your tax disc to arrive.

Also, instead of waiting for the 15th day of the preceding month before you can re-tax a car, you can now tax if from the 5th day of the preceding month.

To renew vehicle tax or SORN quickly and easily, visit or phone 0870 850 4444 or textphone 0870 850 4445
