Here is a summary of the changes that you need to be aware of:
- Buying a vehicle You won’t be able to purchase a car with the existing road tax, you’ll need to buy your own before using the car.
Selling a vehicle You won’t be able to sell a car with the existing road tax. Once the DVLA has been notified that the car has transferred into a new name they’ll automatically issue a refund.
Purchasing road tax You’ll still be able to buy tax for 6 or 12 months, but in addition you’ll now be able to pay monthly (from 1 November 2014). You can get it online or at the post office.
