Some time ago the DVLA stopped you selling or buying a vehicle with existing vehicle tax. The result of this is that they now receive an extra months vehicle tax revenue on every vehicle which is bought/sold. i.e. the previous keeper has paid for that month but is not reimbursed and the buyer also pays for that same full month even if he purchases it on the last day of the month. This is an abuse of the system another stealth tax. With the cost of vehicle tax rising this is another unnecessary additional cost on the motorist.


This problem could be easily solved by taxing cars from the exact date of purchase and reimbursing vehicle tax pro rata from the exact date of sale. As the system does not now have to issue paper tax discs and is run on a computer system this should not be hard to achieve. In effect just like the Vehicle Mot system is run.
