Evidently, in Europe, especially England, there is a road tax. When you pay the tax, you get a disk that you have to display on the auto. There is a holder you can buy, I guess so you don't have to stick it to the window. This is just a guess. The english among us should be able to shed more light.

My car has a road tax. Every year i have to pay the road tax to the govt transport dept. and they'll give a small round paper like disc to stick it on the front window indicating that you've payed the tax. Since the disc paper is not a sticker, a "tax disk holder" will support the tax on the window.

So I'm guessing it's like the registration stickers we have in California, but we get to stick it on our license plate, not the windshield.
i think you're right, its just equivalent to the registration stickers we use in the states. but i kind of like the tax disk holders! do they just use these around Brunei Darussalam? does germany use these as well? just wondering cause if they do it could give our cars a more authentic look, lol, kind of like how all of the honda/acura enthusiasts go all out with JDM stuff, lol.
