Tax disc insurance certificate check to be ditched
Tax disc insurance certificate check dropped
DVLA is proposing to remove the insurance check when a vehicle is taxed.
Under plans unveiled this week by Roads Minister, Stephen Hammond, motorists will no longer have to provide a motor insurance certificate when buying a tax disc, with the change allowing around 600,000 additional motorists a year to tax their cars online.
Justifying the move, Mr Hammond said: “There is absolutely no benefit in making motorists prove they have insurance when they buy a tax disc now that we regularly check existing databases for insurance under Continuous Insurance Enforcement rules.”
A consultation on the proposal closes on 26th November 2012.
