    Do it on line and it shows within 24 hrs.nd you have an instant Email confirming it's taxed.

    Can't pay with cash online, use your local Post Office or lose it.

      Not allowed that stuff.  Wife says I always loose it if she gives me any.

        RT Taxed today (1st April),  still showing as SORN'd, GOV.UK say,

        "Please be aware that if you have taxed, made a SORN or had an MOT in the last 5 days these details may not have updated."

        This application for tax in 2015 was made online, got an email confirmation, it took more than 24 hours to appear on the system.

          Renewed mine on 7 Feb to start on 1 Mar when they posted me a reminder.  Got an instant Email confirming new tax and suggesting I keep a copy.

            Best keep my Post Office receipt handy.

            At least until is appears on the GOV.UK system.

              What's all this SORN'd malarky, a waste of 6 months riding pleasure, guess the roads are gonna get busy with part timers now.


              Just sayin!

                I know, and it saves all that argument over which is the correct charger and long should it be left on  ;D

                      I can't see how its worth saving maybe £30 to cut your riding time in half. Mine might only get out on dry clean roads over winter but so what. Presumably you still have to keep it insured.

                            As last year (see above),taxed the RT yesterday 1st April 2016, but still showing as SORN'ed on the GOV.UK site.

                            Best keep my Post Office receipt handy, I wonder what happens with any ANPR systems for checking vehicle tax.

                            The ANPR database .................... can be well out of date!! Remember it's only as good as the info sent to the feds by the DVLA! We use the online checker but don't lift vehicles unless they are 2 months out of tax to avoid database errors.

                              Checked my RT is showing SORN, plus got a £36.66 vehicle tax refund.
