    Tax Disc

    OK.. I forgot to go to Post Office to get a tax disc.. It's 1 September already and even worse.. WEEKEND! I just paid on the internet a while ago, but obviously I haven't got a tax disc yet..

    So.. can I drive my car like this or I need to wait for the tax disc first?

    Will I have to pay if I get caught like that?

    The law states you must display a valid tax disc, not just have valid tax so yeah, you could get done for it.

    Yes if you are visually caught you would be done, but I would imagine if you went past a ANPR camera it would know (from the database) that you have already paid for the tax and not fine you.

    I was driving short distance this morning from my home to work.. No speed cameras on the way tho.. So fingers crossed.. I'm worried a bit anyway.. I paid today and it says it's paid from 1 September.. so I hope it's ok.

    Can't you phone them up and ask them what to do? If you can display a confirmation of having paid until the disc arrives or something.

    Its not a criminal offence as long as you are displaying any tax disk, out of date or not. As yours is on the way I wouldn't worry.

    Cool, I won't bother buying any tax in future then, just leave the old disc on display.

    he is correct, when i bought my car i couldnt wait for insurance docs and what not so i did it online,

    got pulled twice for no tax but a quick check and me showing the printed invoice was enough for plod to send me on my way. police aint all bad some are understanding
