To help make it simpler to renew car tax you can now use the new 24 hour road tax telephone number set up by the DVLA that is as simple to remember as 1,2,3,4 literally.
The new Vehicle Tax line number is 0300 1234 321.
By calling the hotline people can renew their road tax without having to make a trip to the Post Office.
The hot line service works by verifying you have insurance on your vehicle using the MOT and insurance databases automatically, so that you do not have to make a separate trip out of your home simply to show these papers to anyone physically.
For those who would rather take care of the task in person, the Post Office service will still be offered. Additionally, there is an online alternative that also allows you to check your road tax at http://direct.gov.uk/taxdisc.
Since September of this year over half of all vehicle tax renewals have been carried out online or over the phone. You can buy a personalised DVLA registration here from Carreg who are a DVLA approved reseller.
