Car tax discs 'simplified'

The process of buying a car tax disc could become simpler after plans for a new streamlined system were announced.

Motorists would no longer have to show their car insurance certificate when paying their car tax under the Government's new proposals.

The new system has been suggested on the basis that there is now no need to provide the paper certificate as proof because insurance records are now regularly checked electronically.

Vehicle owners who apparently have no insurance are identified through the ongoing cross-checking of records held by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and the Motor Insurance Database.

Roads minister Stephen Hammond said the Government is keen to cut unnecessary "red tape".

He believes the new system, which will go out for consultation, will be a "quicker, easier and cheaper" way to buy a car tax disc.
