Was just surprised there is a vignet needed to proof you paided the car tax, i would guess the tax department just checks license plates.

The UK wasn't the only country that has/had physical licence tags, surely? If you look behind the mirror of your Coupe, you'll find a clip intended to hold documents (of some sort; I known not what) against the windscreen.

The French used to have a self-adhesive sticker called a Vignette that had to be on the windscreen. I don't know if they still do.

The cost varied depending on the fiscal horsepower (CV) but all had the same expiry date and cost the same no matter when you bought them

I got stopped by the police once for no vignette: they apologised when they saw my Citroen was a right hooker and still on UK plates.
Later when it was on French plates they pulled me over for swapping to the next years sticker a couple of days early after a windscreen change.

Until 1997, in the netherlands part of the car papers had to be glued inside the windscreen. But never for taxes as far as i know.
From google: in Austria the vignet in the form of a sticker was only replaced by a digital application two years ago.

The French no longer have an equivalent to the UK vehicle tax as far as I know which is why they no longer have to display a vignette, although I think they have to display something relating to insurance to prove they have that - makes sense to me particularly as their insurance covers the car for any driver so if the car is insured when on the road it is covered regardless of who is driving it. Also, a quick visual check ability is helpful, for the owner/driver sometimes - used to apply to our tax disc as at least you could see it needed renewal soon. My Coupe still has the last tax disc it had in the windscreen.

Yep it's an assurance vignette but also here in France we also have an mot vignette displayed in the screen.
