Road Tax Exempt ... Empty Road Tax Exempt ...

Post by Teknow on Thu 21 Mar 2013, 07:31

In April 2014, vehicles manufactured before 1st January 1974 become road tax exempt.

There is speculation that the government are already proposing that a 40-year rolling rule comes into effect.

So, if I can keep the toofah on the road until 1st April 2024, I will pay no road tax. ThumbsUp

Never was a rolling 25 year thing. When it was brought in it was any car registered before jan 1st 1973 so thay have added 1 more year have they. So that will be the robbing Tory *people without parents* then Steve. And the only reason it was brought in was so they could make a fortune from old registrations. As soon as you took the 'free' road tax you lost the right to transfer the registration!

Not true on both counts... 25 year rolling was introduced in 1994 by Tories and removed in March 1998 budget by robbing Labour *people without parents*. Restriction of transfer on old reg plates happended 3 years before this in 1991. The DVLA first started selling reg plates in 1989. afro

Wow. It took them a whole 2-years to realise they would run out of number plates and need fresh blood. Sleep

After working in government for over 5 years, its not urprising.
The procedures, processes, amount of people need to agree, lack of basic common sense from upper management, incompetence from them too all make a simple think take years to implement.
Was probley mentioned 5 years ago by someone on the bottom of the ladder but ignored. confused

Can say that from personal experiance - have advised management on a couple of things that to be updated/changed. not done anything till it falls down on its face and someone gets hurts then all of a suddon its a top priority!
