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)
