    Car Tax

    My girlfriends car tax runs out tomorrow so I was gonna tax the car for her on my lunch hour today, However I've had an accident at work this morning and didn't manage to get it done. The tax form, mot etc have been left at work as well. Would I be ok to tax her car on thursday being the 1st of the month or is that deemed to late nowadays, I know they are getting stricter with non payers....

    Looked on the website but can't find out whether or not they deem the 1st of the month to be late and incur a fine...I could understand if you were later than that but not sure how quick they are to fine you.
