Should I have to wait two weeks to get the V5C for a used car I bought from a dealer?

I purchased a car two weeks ago from a reputable garage, however, they say I have to wait another two weeks for the log book. Can I ask for my money back?

Two weeks is a reasonable time for the DVLA to process the change of keeper. Any longer than that isn't so if you don't get it within two weeks, use a form V62 to apply for the V5C in your name: www.gov.uk/sold-bought-vehicle / You had better check that the car is taxed here: www.gov.uk/get-vehicle-information-from-dvla /

I bought a used Megane Scenic in January 2013. The seller is known to me (son of a work colleague) and his dad mailed the log book to the DVLA the next day, registered from work. I heard nothing for over...
I have been trying to change the Historic Vehicle Tax status of my car but DVLA have lost my documents. I have no V5c and it's impossible to get through to anyone at DVLA.
Is it possible to tax a vehicle bought privately without a new keeper slip as the whole V5C is still being updated at DVLA?
