I have a new tax disc

I have just renewed my tax disc on-line (Wahoo :-) ). Okay, the first time I tried to do it the system was down for maintenance, but this time I went through the process in under 5 minutes, and if all goes to plan my new disc will be arriving in 5 days time. The insurance and MOT was checked against databases meaning that I did not need to produce any documents. I wonder if in a few years we will have a physical tax disc at all or if it will all be digital and automated.

Update: The tax disk arrived through the post this morning. The only thing that I think is a little daft is that I can not put it in the car now, I must wait for the old on to expire first. Why not have the new tax disk valid from the renewal date, neither can be used on another car after all.
