Tax for Class 3 scooters


If you have a Class 3 scooter or powered wheelchair, by law it must be taxed. This is because these products are legally entitled to travel on some roads.  

Since 1 October 2014, due to nationwide changes, the DVLA stopped issuing tax discs and you will no longer need to display a tax disc on your Class 3 product. Tax will still need to be arranged and this is included as part of your worry-free package. Each year the DVLA will send a letter to confirm your product has been taxed and provide details of the new tax expiry date. This will be sent to you in the middle of the month before your tax is due to expire.  

You can check whether your product is taxed by calling the DVLA on 0300 790 6802. You will need to provide your registration number which your dealer should have given to you when they handed over your product. If you do not have the registration number, please contact your dealer .
