Default Disabled road tax to standard road tax help

Just bought a car today and only just realised that it was "disabled tax" rated. What do I need to do so that I can tax it and use it, looking on internet I think I now have to go to a taxing PO and fill out various forms.
Anyone gone through this ?

Im pretty sure they done away with changing the documents now so it just get taxed as normal but to be pedantic it is NOT road tax and has not been for a long time it is vehicle tax a tax on owning a vehicle.

They stopped lying about it being spent on roads years ago

I did try to do it on line but comes up as "disabled" and therefore can't change it !!!
I do agree and correct myself "vehicle tax" not road tax

You will need to go to a post orifice then if you can find one still in operation they are closing them too

Once changed though it will be as normal as I am sure they stopped changing them there was never really a need for the change anyway !!

only issue you may have is you only have the green slip which might not be enough !

Yeah, might still be able to get the full V5c off the seller if I text him and ask him not to post off for a few days yet.
Fortunately I've got 2 POs that do vehicle tax very close to me

I would have thought that as soon as the DVLA are notified of a new owner, the vehicle tax would revert to normal.

But how can I drive it now as it takes 2 weeks to change over a log book and under the new tax rules it must be taxed immediately before using and it had the tax taken off at the beginning of April ??

I may be completely wrong here but..............

The new tax rules mean when the DVLA is notified of a change of ownership the remainding tax (whole months) is refunded to the current owner/seller - no tax disc to return these days.
The grey area? - Until the DVLA receives notification the vehicle is still technically taxed and registered to the seller...... as such as long as its insured and MOT'd then it *should* be ok. Well it wouldn't show up on the database as not being taxed etc.

Its up to you but that is how I'd possibly see it.


On another note, you put you car in for an MOT before its due date but within the month. It fails, are you technically allowed to drive on the road as you have both a valid MOT certificate and a fail?
A friends garage posed this to a customer who is a magistrate - she said that if it was within a couple of weeks of the fail she would not consider prosecuting as technically the original certificate covers it. If however it was 3-4 weeks after then adequate time had passed for repairs/retest and then it would bee seen as irresposible and prosecution may be in order. Obviously you can only present up to a month early so the latter is an unlikely occurance anyway.
Obviously this is only an opinion, not fact, but I know there have been times I have presented for an MOT resulting in minor failures but I have been unable to get the car back to the centre until a week later.


I'd welcome any other opinions to see what othe rpeople think - not meaning to hi-jack your thread - but it is along a similar theme.
