Tax Disc Warning

He had bought the car privately with a current tax disc on the screen, but it later transpired that the vendor had bought the tax disc over a Post Office counter with a dud cheque.

That automatically invalidated the tax disc.

Many thanks to the DVLA for this valuable advice that could save unsuspection car buyers from a heavy fine.
