From autumn this year, reports the NFDA, new vehicles registered and taxed through the Advanced First Registration and Licensing (AFRL) system will have the tax discs issued centrally by the DVLA in Swansea.
As no tax discs will be held on retailers’ premises, there will be no need to collect or return them from a DVLA local office. The proposed new legislation (subject to approval in 2013) will also allow new vehicle users to drive for 14 days, following taxation of the vehicle, without displaying a tax disc.
