    No. You will need the code on the disk which you put on the form. They will post you out the new tax disc... iirc.

    Yes you do need to take you disc to the office with you, they will then print you a new one there and then.

    Take your Tax disc and MOT in too.

    They will stamp your MOT with the new reg and issue a replacement there and then for the Tax disc. (Thats how I did mine)

    Strange, it does say on the form not to take the tax disc because you shouldn't obviously leave your car without a disc on it. Hence they posted mine out to me.

    I bought my plate last week and they told me i had to photocopy the tax disc and take that in to them so my car wasnt sitting without tax, they stressed that it wasnt the original that was needed... Think ill do mine through the post though as people have died of starvation and like waiting in Glasgow DVLAs Q.
