Road Tax Exemption for those with disabled children
If your child is on the higher rate of the mobility component for Disability Living Allowance and you have a vehicle that is being used for the direct purposes of the disabled child, you can apply for a Road Tax Exemption certificate (DLA 404).
How to apply for an exemption certificate:
Contact the Disability Benefits Unit on 0845 712 3456 (7.30 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday). Remember that it is the details of the driver must appear on the certificate.
Once you have received your certificate, as long as you have your vehicle registration documents together with a valid MOT (if applicable) and insurance paperwork you can get your free tax disc from the post office.
If you're buying a new car, you can apply for a free tax disc through the dealer, you'll need to give them your exemption certificate (make sure you get it back afterwards).
If you only have the New Keepers' part of the registration certificate V5C/2, you need to apply for a disc at your nearest Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) Local Office. (The V5C/2 is only valid for two months from the date you bought the car).
You will also need:
V62 (Application Form for a Vehicle Registration Certificate V5C).
V10 (Vehicle Licence Application).
Your MOT (if applicable).
