Selling your car on could bring a nice wedge of cash your way. 

But you know what would make it even better? Getting your car tax refunded quickly so you can get your money back ASAP. 

Your tax won’t automatically pass on to the next owner. 

Instead, you’ll have to cancel your tax with the DVLA and get a refund for any full unused months. 

You can also get a refund if your car is no longer on the road (SORN), scrapped, stolen, written off or exported.
