Today 1 October 2014 Marks The End Of The Tax Disc

Today, 1 October 2014 was the day that the UK tax disc in the front of your vehicle came to an end.

The Road Tax Disc has been abolished.

The link above is to our previous blog post on the abolishion of the tax disc and some of the things to watch out for.

DVLA .Gov Website Bombarded


The BBC and others reported people trying to get road tax online today taking up to 13 hours!

The first day of online only applications, although actually you can still go to the post office still at present to renew your road tax licence, was bound to be a busy one.

But just maybe .Gov were not prepared.

As the Government of the UK, whatever the political party in power, seem to force people to do more and more online it is worrying that we then have to rely on Government to have the infrastructure in place to cope with demand.

No dount it will get better and the .Gov website will adapt to cope, lets hope so.

As the .Gov website is becoming central for all or most things Government based, for instance much of the HMRC website is moving to .Gov now, the strain on .Gov is only likely to get more and more.

So when .Gov breaks, the inconvenience to citizens (and government) is only going to be made all the worse.

The joys of too much centralisation, although it makes sense to save costs which is the governements aim.

Time will tell.
