Vehicle Tax Refunds:
If you’re taking your vehicle off the road, selling it or if it’s been scrapped, exported or stolen, then you can claim a refund of vehicle tax. For each full month still to run on the tax disc at the time you apply, you can get a refund. Before the first day of the month you are claiming, the tax disc and refund application must be posted to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in Swansea or handed into your nearest DVLA local office. If your vehicle is in the process of having its registration number transferred or retained, you can’t apply for a refund.

You can apply for a refund in two ways such as refund application with a tax disc and refund application without a tax disc.
