Default UK Car Tax website

I hate to say this about a government website, particularly when they are extracting money from me, but www.direct.gov.uk/taxdisc really works quite well.

Instead of posting a mountain of papers off to Swansea or wherever, or queuing for hours at one of the few post offices that do taxdiscs, just fill in a short form on line. The system will check the database that you have the MOT test on the car, and check from another database that you have valid insurance, and the tax disc for the car windscreen duly arrives 5 days later.

There really are some useful websites out there.

Mind you, I read today that the Audit Office says there is only a one in twenty chance of you being caught for having no tax disc.
