…but of course the DVLA (while saving a fortune in admin and printing costs) are gonna take more off of us than before…
Basically you cannot transfer unexpired tax disc to the new owner when you sell as we have done in the past…grrr
Seller has to apply to DVLA for a refund on the unexpired disc
(But of course you only get the money back for WHOLE months unexpired… if you sell on the 1st January you can only claim from February ) ££Cherching!££ to the DVLA… and you also have the hassle of applying for the refund.
New owner can’t legally move the bike from the sellers without applying for the tax first…and of course some insurance firms take several days to register your details with the DVLA…so you might have to wait a week to pick it up…
