Car Tax must be paid for vehicles that use and/or park on public roads within the United Kingdom. If a car is not being driven, there is still a charge, that is known as SORN.
A Tax Disc has been issued by the DVLA and then displayed in the window of the vehicle, displaying the expiry date. However, as of October 2014, a Tax Disc will no longer be issued and wont need to be displayed within a vehicle. You will still have to make sure you tax your car and will need to keep track on the status of your car tax online.
A Driving Licence is required in the UK to legally operate a vehicle on public roads. A Provisional Licence is granted when learning to driving and upon passing a driving test, a full licence will be given.
A Blue Badge is a permit that is given to those who meet a set of requirements relating to disability and mobility limitations. The recipient is entitled to certain parking privileges, such as being able to use disabled parking spaces and being allowed to park on single or double yellow lines for up to 3 hours.
