When should I tax my car?
When do I need to pay car tax? You need to tax your car every year or whenever you buy a new or used car. You can either tax your car for six or 12 months or pay in monthly instalments. If your tax is due to expire, you will receive a reminder letter from the DVLA in the post.
Will I lose a months car tax?
Yes, you will lose a month if you tax your car on the last day of the month. Your best option is to tax the car from the first date of the next month to avoid losing a whole month of tax which you have just paid for.
Can you drive your car straight away after taxing online?

Can I tax my vehicle online?

Can I tax a vehicle without a v5?
Can you tax a car without the V5C logbook? No. You cannot tax your vehicle if you do not have a V5C logbook. You can only tax the vehicle if you are the owner, as a V5C only proves you are the registered keeper of said vehicle.
How do I tax a used car from a dealer?
If I buy a car, can the dealer tax it for me? Dealers can still tax the car for you by using your name and address and the V5C/2 registration – sometimes called a New Keeper Supplement, and applying either online, over the phone or at the local post office.
Does car tax start immediately?
However, new tax is now backdated (no space) to the beginning of the month and refunds are from the start of the next. This means if you sell and then buy a car early in the month, you will be paying tax twice in that period. The buyer then pays for the car and gets it taxed at the start of the new month.
Can police seize a car for no tax?

Can you tax a car twice by mistake?
