"Motorists are being warned to brush up on the new rules".
Typical British Bureacratic attitude. I bet less than half of all British drivers have any idea at all that the rules are changing.
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face

I wonder how that will affect historic vehicles that do not pay road tax? Will we still have to register?

I'll assuming so (there are, after all, many modern cars, of low emission, which pay no tax).

The problem with the linked article is that it's a journalist's lightweight take on the situation.  I'm (perhaps naively) assuming that when people's paper discs run out, over the next year, the reminder letter will tell us how to register online, rather than how to get the next disc?

I've paid my road tax online for years- a lot easier and less hassle than having to trek down to the Post office.
