As of Oct 1st 2014, it is no longer necessary to display a car tax disc in the window of your car in the UK. Using computer records, enforcement officers can use registration details to check if a car is taxed and insured.
But apparently the on-line tax system is falling over. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-29430979 .

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-29339753 . It looks like car insurances may drop in cost soon. I hope so, as insuring cars is an expensive business. In my own case I have to declare my brain bleed a year ago to my insurer as "a pre-existing condition". I have no idea what difference this will make to how much I shall have to pay. Not too much I hope.
