I just decided to share this information for people that arnt aware. Im terrible for leaving my car tax online till last minute and was stressing a bit about not having my new disc when my old one expired but I found this usual bit of information.
I hope it helps someone in the future :-)
I ordered my tax disc online but it has not yet arrived, is it against the law to drive/park my vehicle on the public highway whilst I wait for the disc to arrive?
Since 1 September 2008, you can legally drive or keep your vehicle on the road up to five days from the end of the month without displaying a valid tax disc provided you have made your application online or by telephone before your current vehicle tax/SORN expires.
