Disabled road Tax disc exemption, What documents do the Post office need?

When applying for exemption for a vehicle road tax disc,

(due to being on PIP), when you go to the post office to get this processed, what documents do you need to bring with you?
  • Vehicle tax reminder (from DVLA) ?
  • The latest passed MOT certificate?
  • original certificate of entitlement (PIP certificate), DLA404?

and for the last one, the DWP certificate, does it matter it this original letter is 1-2 years old? (the date on the letter is 2 years ago, or even 1 year ago)?

    You also need the V5C (log book) Full details of what take is here.

    What you need is the serial number shown on the original certificate because you don't receive a new one every year.

    Do remember that you will only be able to use the vehicle for the benefit of the disabled person.

    Note not all PO deal with disabled taxing .
    Main Post Offices are best .


    Benifit of the disabled claimant is far more flexible than it used to be .

    V10 Tax Application form when postcode wont process dwp pip discount
    DWP exemption certificate -I was asked to phone dwp and request a newer certificate during 2017-previous was from m.s. diagnosis during late 2011/early 2012
    arrived from dwp in a few days.
    Valid M.O,T.
    cheque for road tax including discounted payment.

    If there are any delays be it from dwp or dvla.
    Alternative option is purchase full rate road tax and re claim discounted sum from dvla (using the mentioned Doc's)
    Replenished CRA Reports.

    Simply being on PIP does not entitle anyone to an exemption
    You need to be on High rate mobility - if you are on standard rate mobility, you get a 50% discount !
