The tax-disc is dead, long live ANPR!

"From 1 October 2014, the paper tax disc will no longer need to be displayed on a vehicle windscreen. If you have a tax disc with any months left to run after this date, then it can be removed from the vehicle windscreen and destroyed."

lookie here

Now this is claimed to be in the interest of saving money, but do we agree?

Last time I got a Tax Disc, I had my Insurance and MoT certificates (paper copies) with me - I was told, not needed,everything is online 

So everything is now paperless Smile

Agreed, I always got my tax-disc via on-line as that way I could check that my MOT & Insurance was registered so ANPR would work.

BUT, IMHO no tax-disc on display means that the man-in-the-street can't 'help' the DVLA with out of date discs.

We're now reliant on ANPR, so are there now going to be more hand-held devices by wardens?

Probably not
