(UK only) road tax advice???
I found out I qualify for 50% off road tax as I get the standard rate of disability benefit but the car needs to be in my name. The only problem is with the new tax system as soon as the owner of the car changes the tax is voided. This is all well and good for any other car buyer because they can just tax the car online immediately but the DVLA hasn't updated their system for disabled drivers so I still have to send off paperwork which can take up to 6 weeks.
Am I supposed to drive without tax for six weeks or does anyone know another way or doing this?
.gov website is no help. When you want to pay something they help you in every detail but to claim money back very vague, and can't find anything online
Does anyone know of a solution??
