Car tax discs are to be scrapped and replaced by an electronic vehicle excise duty system.
Officials say car tax discs are no longer needed, with the DVLA and police now relying on an electronic register.
Full details are still to be confirmed, but the new system should allow people to pay the charge by monthly direct debits.
The changes are expected to come into effect in October 2014.
This may not have any financial impact on motorists, but should take some of the stress out of complying with the road tax rules.
