Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,

I understand that vehicle tax is no-longer transferred when a vehicle is sold. It is not possible to obtain a refund for part of a month, or to purchase tax for part of a month. This means there will be a period when a vehicle is sold where notionally (albeit not legally) the vehicle is taxed twice. How much additional revenue per annum does the DVLA expect to make from these "overlap" periods of double taxation.

I am also curious as to why the DVLA does not allow tax to be purchased on a daily basis. With the removal of the tax disc there seems to be no reason to require only whole months to be purchased.

Yours faithfully,
James Harvey.
