Does this mean it's not needed on the bike either?

(I was just about to buy a new holder since the old one is a bit rough)

Won't be able to sell a vehicle with any tax on it, could be a pain for a potential buyer?

I like this though: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It means there's not much chance of being sold a pup with a fake MOT, as long as you check it out first.

1st of October I will be in the garage removing the ugly and inconvenient tax disc holder, even though my tax runs until April next year.

Will probably be a premium-rate number though Oldcat, just more hassle then agreeing a price and and driving/riding off with 'your' insurance covering with the owner's permission.

And don't forget you're going to lose partial months tax when you sell the vehicle unless you sell at the end of the month, the buyer will lose money if they have to tax a vehicle mid month.

Another government money spinner where they have to do less and make more for the privelidge.

Also a shame for all the tax disc holder manufacturers who will lose revenue.

It's a standard rate (0300) number, but could be a bit of a faff nonetheless.
You'd need to buy the car then contact your insurance company to cover the car before you can apply for the tax and drive it home.  Neutral

Regarding Partial months tax, I'm sure I read somewhere that you can claim it back when you come to sell the vehicle. Could be wrong though.
