    tax & insurance question

    My mrs has just had her car mot'd and it passed.. Now, its been off the road for 12months and so it needs taxing but she has no insurance on it at the minute as she's waiting for take her driving test end of next month and doesnt want to insure it as a provisional to have to change it if she passes and end up getting charged more than if she went some where else if her premium goes up.

    I thought though.. if i were to add the car as a second car on my insurance would i be able to get it taxed then? even if i added her as a named driver aswell ?


    Cheers

    Matt

    just insure it as a 2nd car in your name for now until she passes. you will be able to tax it providing you get a insurance cert.

    all you have to do is say the car is yours (your the owner) but she is the registered keeper.

    my work mate drives his brothers car as he dont use it as he has a work van, but my work mate has the insurance in his name

    as in.. i bought the car so i own it, but i gave it to her and its kept at hers so for insurance purposes she's the registered keeper??

    can i do that online aswell? as she doesnt have the Vehicle Licence Application form as its SORN'D. Its easier to do it over t'net..

    I wont be able to do it untill Wednsday as my car is in for an mot and im having a courtesy car so i'll add that car to my insurance and once i get mine back i shall ring up and get the reg numbers swapped over

    the tax will be fine when you have insurance.

    it shows that the car is insured, but may take a couple of days before you can tax it online due to when the insurance update the records on the insurance database.

    But of course you wont be able to tax it until you have a valid MOT which im sure you know already
