Tax your car, motorcycle or other vehicle using your reminder letter (V11).

If you don’t have a reminder letter, you can use:

  • a V5C registration certificate (log book) that’s in your name - get a replacement if you don’t have one
  • your new keeper supplement (V5C/2) if you’ve just bought the vehicle
  • your ‘last chance’ warning letter

At the Post Office

Go to your local Post Office that deals with vehicle tax. You’ll need payment for your vehicle tax and one of the following:

  • your vehicle tax reminder letter (V11)
  • a V5C registration certificate (log book) in your name
  • a new keeper supplement (V5C/2), if you’ve just bought the vehicle

You may also need:

  • your MOT test certificate (must be valid when the tax starts)
  • a valid reduced pollution certificate

In Northern Ireland you’ll also need an insurance certificate or cover note.

Make a SORN

If you don’t keep or use your vehicle on a public road, you can make a SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) instead of taxing it.
