if caught prob get 8 points and around a 2-300 fine plus costs

also chance your car will be impounded and possibly crushed if you dont pay for its release and storage charges


choice is yours mate

No tax is a non-endorsable offence, meaning NO points. It will be about £60 fine and a report to the DVLA. They do not have the power to confiscate untaxed cars.

That's no insurance. Tax is purely dealt with DVLA

tax is not linked to your insurance but having no tax can work out very costly

It depends on the wording on your policy. Many just say that the vehicle has to be in a roadworthy condition. So it doesn't even need an MOT

but unless the vehicle is brand new or not over the threshold, you need an MOT to drive on the road

If you're car doesn't have a MOT it's classed not to be roadworthy though. :thumbsup:

how are you gonna prove that it is roadworthy without an mot?

do you have an official link to the goverments stance on this as i believe you are incorrect;-)

the police came and towed a car outside my house the other day because it didnt have tax, was only parked there for 20 mins, police walked along the road checking for tax disks, then 10 mins later the tow truck turned up and took it

gwt them to fax a copy of your insurance to your local post office where you tax your car

That's the DVLA towing it, why they need the police do this and not just use that big black computer to do it
