I'm going to see a car tomorrow and am travelling a fair distance to go see it, but it does not have any tax. So, the problem i have is that, should i agree to purchase the car tomorrow I dont want to be driving a car 200 miles with no tax as it'll invalidate my insurance (once i set it up if the viewing is successful).
Assuming I buy the car tomorrow (this is a private sale by the way) and arrange my insurance with an insurance company over the phone i will need to tax the car, but seeing as i wont have any insurance documents to hand for the car, or a document showing that I am the registered keeper of the car, how on earth can I tax it before making my journey home? can i go to the post office and fill something in that enable me to tax the car?
I seriously dont want to drive all that way with no tax (and thus no valid insurance), so am wondering what choices I have tomorrow?
anyone in the know fancy giving me some advice?!?
