    Car Tax running out quessie...

    What would happen in this situation??

    A persons car tax runs out TODAY. He has no money, is skint, at rock bottom etc BUT, gets payed on Friday, so will go and get it first thing Friday morning........ Will he get fined? In the 5hit, sent down, car crushed etc etc?

    Hmmm. Are you allowed to get tax at the PO with a cheque? That would take a few days to clear so money would be in the account when it does clear?

    If you get all the forms filled out and have them in the car just for worst case etc.

    I dont think they would be too worried about 2-3 days?

    who's to say what will happen...what i would do just to be on the safe side (have done this in the past)
    dont use car, get it SORN'd for the next few days and then tax on friday

    being skint is no defence

    this is obviously worst case scenario - i'd have thought most ppl wouldnt be too bothered about a few days but then again.....who knows!

    Granted, If your driving round with no tax, its fair enough, you should get done. Being skint is no excuse. Just dont know what the PO would say when he renews on 3-11-06 tax that was due 31-10-06....

    its got nowt to do with the PO - u could tax it whenever u want. Ive done it loads of times - goin in and paying say a week or more after the due date...they dont care - if anything they're probs laughing cos ur paying for longer than ur getting..if that makes sense.

    dont worry boy! ... presuming this is YOU and not "A persons car tax runs out today" yeah yeah!

    it is indeed the computer that monitors the entire procedure...its all just gonna be pot luck at the end of the day - still i would probs be on the safe side and dont use the car, SORN it until friday then tax when funds allow. Just get the bus or walk in the meantime! no real hardship is it!!!
