You can apply for a new tax disc or, if you intend to take the vehicle off the road,
declare Statutory Off Road Notification, known as SORN, directly over the internet.
You can also use the Vehicle Enquiry service to check what information DVLA holds on its
database about a vehicle.
How does it work?
You tell us the vehicle. You will need either the 16 digit reference number shown on your renewal reminder, or the 11 digit reference number from your Registration Document/Certificate (also known as the Logbook) and your vehicle registration mark (numberplate).
For a new tax disc we check the vehicle is insured and, if applicable has an electronic MOT Test Certificate/GVT Certificate or entitlement to disability exemption.
You choose the tax disc
you want, 6 or 12 months, and then enter your payment card details.
Note: an additional charge of £2.50 will be added to the amount payable if you use a credit card.
You should receive the new tax
disc in the post within5 working daysor a SORN confirmation letter within 4 weeks.
