Car tax: taxing your vehicle

You can renew your car tax by:

  • phoning 0300 123 4321 (Calls to 03 numbers cost approximately 2p to 10p from landlines, 10p to 40p from mobile phones)

  • visiting your local Post Office that deals with vehicle tax

  • applying online at GOV.UK

To apply online you'll need either:

  • the 16 digit reference number on your vehicle tax renewal letter (V11)

  • the 11 digit reference number on your log book (V5C)

  • the 12 digit reference number on your New Keeper Supplement (V5C/2) if you've just bought the vehicle
