Tax exempt vehicle

My Stag was built in December 1975 and I have the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate to prove it. Today, 1 April I took all the required documentation to my local Post Office but they were unable tax it as an historic vehicle despite having called their help line. I was told that the PO software needs updating - is this true?

That might be correct. A December 1975 doesn't become eligible for 'free' historic tax until April 2016, but it might not be until 5th April 2016 and that might be why the software won't play ball.
