Don't Let You Old Car Give You New Problems

Make sure this doesn’t happen to you. Simply send DVLA your vehicle’s registration document /certificate with the new owner’s details and they’ll send you a letter of receipt confirming that you are no longer liable for taxing it. Paying for someone else’s failure to tax their vehicle really is your problem unless you notify DVLA of the sale. Remember, you are required by law to keep your vehicle record up to date, you must tell DVLA if you sell, transfer, scrap or export your vehicle. DVLA is no longer reliant on spotting untaxed vehicles on the road before action can be taken. Although on-road enforcement will continue, car tax evaders can now also be identified direct from DVLA’s vehicle record. Therefore failure to renew your car tax or Statutory Off Road Notification, within a month of expiry, can result in an automatic £80 penalty landing on your doormat. And, if you continue to drive without a valid tax disc you could be fined a minimum of £1,000. The new rules are aimed at cracking down on individuals who do not tax their vehicles. As you need to produce an MOT (if applicable) and insurance certificate to buy a tax disc, the measures will reduce the number of unsafe and uninsured vehicles on the road. The new rules also reinforce the requirement for keepers to notify DVLA of changes, thereby improving the accuracy of the record, making it easier for the police to trace the owners of abandoned cars, and those used in criminal activities. In short, these new measures will benefit all road users.
