if i dont tax the car until a week into the month ..will i get in trouble?? ( car will be stored off road)

thing is they wont let me tax online as my insurance ran out today..the new insurance hasnt shown up on thier database, so by the time my certificate arrives and i get to the posty it will be past the 1st of the month!!

im going to try again online soon, maybe the database will be updated

I remember reading around here that the DVLA give you a little time before they decide to fine the hell out of you, although dont take it as the gospel mind :-)

If your tax disc expires on 31 May 06 I don't think you'll have a problem. The much advertised £80 fixed penalty does not kick in until 28 days have passed with neither tax or SORN. There will be a technical offence of being untaxed, but IIRC that's a revenue matter and in practice they won't prosecute for short duration offenders.

Suppose a sharp eyed copper might put you in his book for failure to display but I think you'd be very unlucky for that to happen.

Why will it take longer than one week for your insurance certificate to arrive? 1st June isn't until next Thursday. Even if they sent it 2nd class tomorrow, it will still arrive by next Tues.

probably using an offshore insurance company? and the certificate is coming by "message in bottle"?

When you get the insurance you could always walk to the Post Office.
