2013 vignette, valid for Dec 2012?

I know that auto vignettes are valid until the end of Jan of the following year

e.g.

one for 2012 is valid until end of Jan 2013

but is the reverse true?

We have visitors coming now and I don't want them to have to buy 2 vignettes if they can help it. i.e. 2012 and 2013 (yes I know they'll be covered by 2012, but they're coming later in 2013 again, beyond the end of Jan)

So, is the 2013 vignette valid for use now?

As mentioned, the 2013 vignette goes on sale December 1st. From then, I don't even think you can buy a 2012 vignette. I would imagine that sales points return any stock they have for a refund/swap to the 2013 version.

The 2013 vignette is valid a total of 14 months. From December 1st 2012 until January 31st 2014.

bah, dumbnutz am I, it says it on the back of the vignette that that is the case


Tax period and validity
The tax must be paid for the entire calendar year and is not refundable (applies even for unused stickers). The motorway tax sticker is valid from 1 December of the year prior to that printed on the sticker through to 31 January of the year following that printed on the sticker.
