The abolition of the paper vehicle tax disc has delivered significant savings for the taxpayer and businesses since its removal in 2014.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), the police and other enforcement authorities use data from the DVLA’s vehicle register to confirm that vehicle excise duty has been paid. Over £6 billion is collected annually. The Government has no plans to reinstate the paper vehicle tax disc.
