Car tax expires in 3 days and no reminder received yet. I wonder if they have stopped sending reminders.
If thats the case it would be easy to forget and get caught out.
Anyone received a reminder lately.

Yes, normally a month or so before, I have stuff like this set in my calendar on my phone so I never miss anything.

I always get a snail mail reminder letter. I've just paid mine. £330 now I think. - Ouch!

I had my letter, with the V11 in it, about 3 weeks before it was due.

Another bloody tax that does sod all to rectify the problem it's designed for and now it's not even transferrable when you sell the car. What happens when you sell a car when it still has road fund licence on it now? Do you get a refund?

It’s a con. I sold my mate a van, a few days before the end of the month, I would have lost the weeks tax and he would have had to back tax it for the month, we just didn’t register it as sold to him until the week was up, I got the tax refund and he didn’t have to back tax. No good if you are selling to a stranger though.

None of that makes sense, you can't lose a week's tax, it's calculated in months.

The tax on our cars is renewed by direct debit. Not my fault if the Government don't take the money.

Oh no mate, they get around that as i found out to my cost (£80 fine).

The onus to ensure the vehicle is road legal (taxed, mot'd and insured) is on the driver!
