    Ordered VXR! BUT tax problem..

    Just ordered my VXR.. Yeyy!! But…. having some trouble with the dealer. He is saying he cant tax it this week so I can pick it up this weekend (like he promised previously). He saying that part of Vauxhall is closed that deals with getting new cars taxed and I will have to wait till next week. I get the feeling its an excuse - to do with him meeting his bonus for the month and is trying to drag it to next month.

    Does anyone know if hes telling the truth about all Vauxhall dealerships not being able to tax new cars this week??
    I was on such a high about getting me new car just to have it ruined. means ill have to wait even longer!

    Ask to speak to his manager imo.

    Vauxhall don't tax cars. The dealer's admin people do it, either using computer, or by going to the nearest tax office and doing it there.

    So, I call bullshit.

    He is half right in what he is saying but not completely. The DVLA system (not Vauxhall) is going down Todayfor updates and is due to be back online at 11am Thursday. However DVLA have advised that any cars going out in the next few days, should where possible be advance taxed i.e. they could have been taxed today for Friday. Generally when the system goes down it rarely goes back on exactly when they say.
    Personally Im working on the basis that if its due to come back on tomorow then it should be fine for taxing on Friday and have subsequently moved any cars due to be taxed tomorow onto Friday for safety;s sake.

    Hope that helps.
