Standard mobility and vehicle tax exemption

The_worrier Member Posts: 10 Listener
Good evening all,

After contacting the DVLA about taxing my Dad's new vehicle, they informed him that as he's on the standard rate for mobility he's entitled to a 50% discount on his road tax. We had no idea that this was possible. Not only that, they will back pay him for the last 5 years, all they need is a statement from the DWP.

How long has this been a policy?
