  1. What am I doing wrong? It asks for a 12 digit number, there are only 11 digits on the slip. :(
     
  2. Is it same on docs for bus?? only 11 digits

    You can only tax with the supplement at the post office as far as I know, there's an extra digit on the v5
     
  4. you can't have the green slip as this has an extra digit at the beginning of the reference no
     
  5. I have the green slip, it has 11 numbers, not sure what you mean. :)
    That's what I thought the answer would be - the slip is dfated 2001 so maybe they bung an extra number on them now.

  6. I just checked a couple of mine, but they are they new type, and the green section has an additional digit in front of the 11 digit V5 reference number.

  7. I wouldn't wear a green slip, anyway. It's not going to match anything in your wardrobe, let's face it.

  8. Green slip is PO only, not online. Hopefully that is off the last issued V5 or they might get grumpy about that too.
     
  9. I'm sure that there is a line underneath the box that u enter the reference from your reminder. That says to tax it if you only have the new keeper bit or the v5c that then takes you to a different screen where you enter in the new keeper reference.
     
  10. Yes you do but it insists you have 12 digits. If I was registered keeper already, 11 digits would do, but I'm not, the car came from the trade and is still registered to the chap who owned it previously.

  17. What bit do you have??
    Can you upload pic to see what it says
    Cause it you go to this link https://www.taxdisc.service.gov.uk
    It says there it you are a new keeper and if you only have the v5c/2 the green slip you can tax it.
     
  18. Yep, did the insurance, it has MOT, but when it came to tax computer said no, so I drove home tax free. :)
    Yes I know all that, I've been trying! V5C/2 I have, but mine has 11 numbers and when we checked so does the first half a dozen we found. I'm not going to take a picture, I can count to 12 thanks. :)
