  2. "from April 2014 any car registered before January 1 2014 will be entitled to a free tax disc"

    Major typo on the telegraph website, either that or most of the country will be getting free road tax :D

    I did spot that! January 1st 1974 apparently.
  4. It's about time they started it moving again although we are tax free :D but will still be good news for quite a few on here! I wonder if they will keep it rolling or just leave it at 1974?

    it's gonna be funny when some of the ringers are now free tax - i know of one on here for deffo hahahhaha.......
  6. Great news :)
  7. If they do keep it rolling on a year at every budget going forward, it will still take 5 years for mine to become tax free:(
  8. Fantastic piece of jouralism. Currently vehicles manufactured before 1st of january 1973 are exempt, not registered.

    I would take this with a pinch of salt guys - shoddy journo. Bet he gets paid more than most of us!
  9. mine was built 3rd January 74 ;(
  10. Please tell me your not joking are you serious?
  11. Yay. mines a 73 and I already have the build certificate to prove it. Plus my tax is from mid jan so that means I have no more to pay ever!! :)

  12. won't you need some from Jan'14 to April '14? Rules don't change this year...
  13. Just seen the link I think I qualify can't wait for a year though change it now
  14. Yeah just realised that. Thought it started in Jan. Thats ok though will just buy 6mths rather than a year.
  15. Looks good but sloppy journo at the telegraph. Wonder if it will keep rolling year after year.
  16. I really hope so, otherwise I've missed it by 2 whole days :(
  17. Its in Black and White. .Owners of classic cars received a boost in the Budget. Classic car tax exemption has been moved forward by a year, so cars built before January 1, 1974, will now qualify for a free VED disc. Previously this applied only to cars built before January 1, 1973.
    I already have free tax,but good news for those who dont. .
  18. Still no change for me at 1978:(
