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

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.

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.

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.

I agree Tango - suddenly the roads are alive with swarms of summer-only rice warriors in transformer suits...

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 can be well out of date!!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.
