    My car tax runs out at the end of this month (july) and ive still not recieved my reminder from the DVLA so i can pay via phone or online

    I changed my address about 7 months ago, but is there a certain time of the month they give these letters out, or is mine very late?!

    I had mine at the beginning of the month so yes your is late, did they definitely change your address? Have you got the new V5 with your new address on it?

    Oh and you can still apply for the disc online without the reminder.

    Where is your V5? Did you post it off to get the address changed and you've not had it returned?

    I never sent off the V5, i rang up and just got told to send off my licence, i renewed my tax in january no problem (when i'd moved)

    I dont think i even know where my v5 is..

    Your driving license is separate from the car taxing and registering, it is important you know where the V5 is and you do need to send it off to get the address changed see: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring...ate/DG_4022055

    So your tax reminder has been sent to where ever DVLA thinks the car is registered.

    If you have lost the V5 see here http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring...cle/DG_4022404

    I would recommend maybe giving them a call. Hope this helps.

    So what?
    Go to the post office with your V5, insurance certificate, MOT certificate and some cash.

    Whats the problem?

    You will need to change the address on the V5c when you've taxed it, though.
