Buying car tax online! at last

certainly beats finding a post office and queueing all lunchtime with all the millions of documents you have to take -

Just tried it. Worked a treat and saved a trip to the post office!

Beware! on line car tax

I applied for my care tax on the 25th Sept 2006 ...I'm still waiting they are sending a duplicate I'm still waiting for that too. I used this service b4 ...BUT I'll never use it again. Post office say ther has been loads of problems. So now I have to wait until Tues 10th Oct b4 I can inform them about a new one. After that I'll give up waiting and tax it at the post office. which means I'll have to apply for a refund. By then I will have lost out on ten days road tax. Police say I must not drive my car without a valid tax disc.....EVEN THOUGH I CAN PROVE I HAVE PAID!!!

I did it a while back and was prepared for pages and pages of forms to fill in…. not a bit of it. It was all over before I knew it.

Did take them 2 attempts to get it out to me but hay ho. What the hell still less stress than post office.

Why do we pay it anyway??? Just to keep 1/2 of Swansea in jobs!!! In Spain they have the tax on their petrol - and it's STILL cheaper than our fuel.....

Also I wonder why we need to display a stupid tax disk anyway - the cameras everywhere only look at your number plate.

Never mind - it all goes to make our motoring more of a pleasure......

Yup took the disc about 5 days to arrive in the post, but so much less hassle. Scary thing was enter the reg number and it checks your insurance and MOT instantly to see if they are valid just as the cops do now at the roadside. Big brother is watching and for once I am all for it if it means getting the uninsured louts of our roads.

But the unisured louts just swop their plates or know how to avoid the cameras - or just pinch someone's car!!!

What REALLY gets me is this new SORN thing - why the hell should you have to tell anyone if you choose to put your car in your own garage and leave it there??? What happens if you are away working and you find your contract is extended by say 6 months? You come back to find a hefty fine even though your car is NOT on the road!!!
