Supporting the Post Office

Over at David Jones' blog, the Clwyd West Conservative MP writes about his experience at renewing his car tax online.

David relates that on entering the DVLA website, he was surprised to be informed that those who 'tax or SORN on-line or by phone this month' will be entered into a free prize draw for one of three brand-new SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive cars.

Naturally the MP is shocked that, given the current fragile state of the UK motor manufacturing industry, the DVLA is not offering British cars as prizes.

I have a more fundamental question though: why did David not renew his car tax at his local Post Office and support the retention of a vital community asset?
not all post offices let you pay your road tax at them
Very true. That is why I always go out of my way to find one that does. It is just a matter of making the time.
To find a PO at which you can pay car tax select 'Motor Vehicle Licence' from the drop-down list at the branch finder page.
And......by the time you've done that you could have already paid it online.

C'mon people, those of us who live in the real world dont have the time to "browse" for the "nearest" post office simply to pay our car tax. Somthing we dont want to pay in the first place!!
