DVLA Tax Disc Change

Changes in the DVLA mean that from 22 July 2013 Vauxhall dealers can no longer issue new vehicle tax discs. However, your dealer can register your vehicle with the DVLA who will then post out your tax disc within 14 days.

What this means for you

  • You can use or drive your newly registered vehicle for up to 14 days from the date of registration, without displaying a tax disc.
  • Vehicles can be registered up to 14 days in advance any month of the year.
  • Choose to have your tax disc sent to your dealer, the address of the registered vehicle owner or a fleet operator.
  • If your tax disc hasn’t arrived after 8 days, you can get a free duplicate by taking your V5C log book to the Post Office.
