Road Tax Disc Explained

You might hear to this referred as to something called excise licence, but in common parlance (speech!) this is called road tax.

And you will have a circular piece of paper that comes to show that you have paid the road tax, and so this is referred to as the road tax disc, or simply your tax disc.

Every car that is less than 25 years old must be taxed if they are on the highway, regardless of whether they are actually driven or not. Note that there are some exemptions to this, most specifically for some disabled drivers.

The tax disc licence that you get can have one of two possible periods of time for which it is valid. These are a period of 6 or 12 months on payment of the necessary moneys for that licence. You have to renew it BEFORE it expires.

At the point that you renew, there are certain things that you must do. You must produce your valid insurance certificate, and also if the vehicle is three years old or more, also a Vehicle Test Certificate - this is what is referred to as the MOT.

Finally once you have the tax disc it might be displayed on the windscreen in a clear manner so that the details are on are easily read.
