The majority of UK drivers want the DVLA to bring back the tax disc.

Research by found that 81% of drivers want the tax disc to return because they are forgetting to tax their vehicles on time. If these figures are representative across the UK it means 35 million people want the paper tax discs back.

The research also found that 13.5 million drivers do not know when their tax is due.

The DVLA scrapped the paper tax disc in October 2014 and moved to an electronic system to reduce tax administration costs. quoted the DVLA as saying: “We believe that the digital system is working well and that more than 29 million have chosen to tax their vehicles online or by phone. When vehicles are due to be taxed, we still send reminders, we send V11 reminders to all motorists except those who have chosen to pay by Direct Debit – they would receive a Direct Debit reminder. If motorists are driving without valid tax then they could be fined up to £1,000 and face having their vehicle impounded so it is paramount for them to make sure their vehicle is taxed on time.”
