    Tax due May 1st - no reminder again! 17th Apr 17 at 6:12 PM
    I went into a bit of a panic today, when I thought my tax may have expired at the end of March, but fortunately it is the end of April.
    Yet again, I have received no reminder, and I wonder how many others haven't since the doing away with tax discs.
    Is this a government ploy to get more money through fines?
    I am definitely going to start displaying the tax receipt in the old tax holder, because it is only a matter of time before I forget.

    I setup a DD for my VED when I got the first renewal for my new car (salesman did the first year when registering it) and received an electronic mandate confirming this.

    The email stated

    "Your vehicle tax will automatically renew unless you notify us of any changes. We will send a new payment schedule at the time of renewal."

    Sure enough 12 months later I got another email from them confirming it was paid

    Ensure is not going to your spam folder and that you have the correct details entered online
