I received this morning the V11 form to retax the car. I have carried this out over the recent years - on line. The current car I have had for a year- which was taxed in my name when purchased. So onto the web site I go. Tick the have I got and do I comprehend boxes Yes. Enter the vehicle Reference number [ie - the registration number. What is the response? 'Sorry we do not have the details for this car.' Hmm- does that mean I cas run tax free? You betcha I cant Anyway as I have as stated the V11 with all the detail- they must have- mustn't they?
If you had tried earlier in the week it would have told you cant do it more than a fortnight in advance, which is fine unless you are going on a three week holiday at the end of the month when you want to tax it.
The last time I used the 'pay your vehicle tax' website, it refused the credit card details. But a nice lady on the telephone took all the same details and the card was accepted. Apparently this procedure is not unknown?.
Just as easy now for me to support our local Post Office again, and keep the staff in employment.
