Renewing the tax disc

#1
I am bemused by the DVLA online system.

I do not have to pay for a replacement tax disc if I renew at 6 monthly intervals but if I want the convenience of a 12 month disc I have to pay £20.

Catch? The DVLA web system does not have a 6 month disc option for this car. Only a 12 month one for which I am expected to pay. The way round it is to use the local Post Office.

Out of curiosity, has anyone seen a 6 month option when renewing a tax disc online?

Mine works out £20 cheaper if I renew 12 months instead of every 6. Being a tax you would expect a flat rate rather than the con of having to pay more if you renew every 6.

It is dearer if you renew ever 6months as you say. DVLA are more than a tax revenue collector they are a mafia style extortion organisation.

I get a letter from Ayuntamiento de Dosrius with a numeric code and bar code. Enter/scan that either online or at an ATM, and if paid within one month it's half price. No messing around. Great

That'll be because the Megabytes will have to work twice as hard, causing twice the wear and tear, meaning replacement more often. They don't pay for themselves, you know!

I have always had a 6 month option, but then again I have a diesel van which is high road tax. Could it be that lower emmison cars are so cheap to tax it's not worth their while doing a 6 month. Just a thought
