    Unhappy Insurance Database??

    ive finally got round to getting my 888 Coupe on the road after eing SORN for nearly a year. I got it mot'd today it passed with everything green (apart from wrong coloured bulbs) so very happy HOWEVER..... I went online to tax my car however when it checked on the insurance database, my car was showing as not insured (fair enough i did only change the insurance in the morning). So i took my fresh MOT certificate and the registration book and a FAX cover letter of insurance to my "friendly" post office, only to find out they wouldnt accept a fax copy of the cover letter it had to be the ORIGINAL!!!

    Sorry for the long story i just wanted to show how happy i was at getting the car ready for the road and then only to be shot down in flames

    so my question is how long does it take for this insurance database to update

    (and if anyone knows how long the MOT database will take aswell much appreciated)

    cheers

    I had the same problem last month when I went to tax the car - online system showed the car as being uninsured. I called up my insurance to double check and all was well. Problem being, I hadn't made any changes to the policy so there was no reason for the problem!

    I had to go into the PO to get tax and I used a 'faxed' copy - it was actualy a PDF sent by AF that I printed off.
