Customer insight research carried out in September by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) showed that 87% of customers were aware that the tax disc was being abolished on 1 October 2014.

This research was conducted through social media, face to face focus groups, direct mailings and paper surveys.

The DVLA will continue to issue a renewal reminder to vehicle keepers before the vehicle excise duty is due to expire.
