Well done DVLA

I ordered my new car tax disk online on Saturday (21st).

It arrived in the post yesterday (24th).

Excellent service (and that includes the Royal Mail).

And it saves all that time in the Post Office queue. Mine came through in two days and my fishing licence from another .gov site was just as quick.

Not only that, it saves having to find a post office that still issues a tax disc, the two nearest me stopped a couple of years ago.

And final plus point, the automatic entry into a prize draw to win a Seat car...

"the automatic entry into a prize draw to win a Seat car..."

Not sure about that.

I rather feel that the DVLA should have better things to do with MY money than giving away free prizes.

read the leaflet that comes with the renewal pack, the cars have been donated by Seat at no cost to the tax payer...

click here
"What cost is there to the taxpayer?

The cars are being provided by SEAT at no cost to the taxpayer, SEAT have kindly offered to provide three (Ibiza model) or two (Leon model) cars a month as prizes in each draw ‘free of charge’."

"the cars have been donated by Seat at no cost to the tax payer..."

That's OK then. ;-))

Didn't read the leaflet because, as is my usual practise, the enclosed bumph went straight into the rubbish bin (or the paper recycling bin before the politically correct brigade jump down my neck).

Doe's anyone actually win these cars?.

I have entered for previous DVLA free draw competitions, and local main dealer free prize draws, and have never won or had notification of any winners :o)

I once won a rabbit in a christmas draw only to find that I had to skin it

At least you did not have to kill it! --- I presume.

The way things are going soon everybody'll get a free car with their tax disc.
