Just heard today, don't know how true it is, but when the government do away with paper tax discs in October you will not be able to sell your vehicle with tax still on it? Apparently the reason given is that with no paper proof of the vehicle being taxed it will prevent you driving your new vehicle under the misconception that it is taxed when the previous owner had in fact been refunded the tax. Also it is to prevent you driving without insurance in your new vehicle as you obviously need insurance to tax it? Seems to me that this is just another government ploy to fleece drivers, as many wont bother to reclaim tax and in some cases when you sell a vehicle mid month it will be taxed twice for the same month? Hope I'm wrong and maybe someone can correct me?
