The DVLA have finally joined the 21st century and I’ve just purchased a new tax disc online. Shame that the big yellow box on the front of my renewal form didn’t contain the required reference number but holds an advert for buying online instead. Fortunately, with the reference number from the vehicle registration certificate and a license plate number it was able to find the necessary records. The system doesn’t quite deliver on the “quickly” part of the advert – only after you’ve paid does it tell you that it may take up to five working days for the disc to arrive. Shame the current one expires on Tuesday!
