    Tax

    BUGGER! Went down post office yesterday to get my tax and i forgot to tax a mot and insurence certificate so i thought id go down today, buttt i had hard night on the beer and i have only just woke up and the post office is now closed untill monday

    So what should i do? just go down on monday and get my new tax and not drive the car at all or drive it and if i get pulled ( fingers crossed i dont ) and tell the police what i am going to do? because all i will have to do it back it wont i?

    Cheers Mark

    Your cars not taxed.

    You can't drive it, simple as.

    You can tell the police what you want, it makes no difference.

    Do it online and say you are waiting on the post if you get stopped.

    You could still get pulled and charged for not showing a valid tax disc.
    Even if it's taxed online.

    do it online and you have 5 days grace! they have just brought this out as i got the little leaflets from them when my tax disc came through the other week! once its paid then your legal to drive as it shows on the computer so if the police pull you and run a check it comes up as a taxed vehicle!

    do it online, quicker to go to post office, doesn't matter if you order it or not, if you don't display you have to pay, been there done that and got the t-shirt.

    not just thepolice to watch out for.....Traffic wardens, don't take excuses very well.
