Selling your car? Know your obligations


If you sell or trade-in your car, you are obliged to update the vehicle owner details on the National Vehicle and Driver File (NVDF). If the vehicle continues to remain in your name, you will be legally liable for any charges including, motor tax, toll charges and any penalties which may be incurred for any traffic violations (e.g. parking fines).
