AFAIK, you can't drive on old plate as it would be unregistered! maybe someone else could confirm.
a few years ago I bought private plates online for sons xmas, to avoid disappointment I did it late nov/early dec, they came through within a couple of days and we had to change straight away as above.

Thanks for that :-)

I did this a few months ago, didn't change mine until a few days after getting the new V5 as I had to wait for the weekend. I realise its not technically legal but I thought it was worth the risk. Worst case I had all the paper work and would find it hard to believe a police officer would have a problem.
Not recommending you do the same but for me I couldn't do without the car for a week.
