    We’re part exchanging our car with 3 months tax left on the disc and buying a newer vehicle that comes with no tax disc. We didn’t get a particulary good amount on the p/e and I expect that our old car will be driven away from our house on the dealers plates and end up at a car auction. Is it acceptable/usual procedure to keep the valid disc and get a refund on it or should I just let it go?

    Cheers in advance to the collective STW fountain of knowledge for guidance on this matter.

    Cheers, bruneep & lord I’ll be cashing it in then with no scruples.

    Actually, I’ve just remembered that when our last car was involved in a crash and the insurance company said it was going to be written off I nipped round to the garage, retrieved the tax disc and cashed it in.

    Check that they haven’t factored it into your part-ex valuation. Ours was but it had 9 months on it still.
    And make sure you send off your V5 slip & KEEP the confirmation letter from DVLA telling you its no longer in your name. Tossers just had us for 3 months tax & £40 fine for not keeping the letter. Even though they sent the bloody thing they wouldnt check their records & maintained its our fault for not keeping it.

    DVLA are biggest bunch of devious wankrs ever to infest this planet.
