    Tax it tomorrow and you will be able to drive it straight away.

    The new tax disc will expire 30/11/11. Because you are so close to the end of the month, you "gain" the extra couple of days FOC

    You don't need to bother with the old disc. The new one you get will be valid and will run for a full year and the extra couple of days
