The tax disc may soon be obsolete!

The BVRLA has welcomed recent news that the tax disc may soon be obsolete because of new Government plans to digitise car taxation.

They are claiming a major victory after many years of campaigning for the Department for Transport to axe the tax disc as part of a wider streamlining of DVLA services. Used as a quick and visible means of demonstrating that a vehicle has been taxed, the disc is no longer required because this can instantly be confirmed by accessing DVLA computers.

John Lewis the BVRLA's chief executive stated "We estimate that removing this pointless piece of paper would save the government around £90m a year and produce major administrative cost savings for fleet operators as well." and "It is great that the Red Tape Challenge we participated in last year is continuing to bring results,"

It may not be too long before Transit van owners no longer have to worry about displaying a tax disc on there new Ford vans!
