Yes

yes you have up 2 14 days to diplay it i think, due to postage reasons

I have not received the tax disc. Can I use the vehicle without the tax disc displayed?

When you apply for a tax disc online or by using our phone service you are able to legally continue to drive your vehicle for up to 5 days after the tax disc has expired while you wait for the new tax disc to arrive. This will only apply when you have applied for a new tax disc before the current one expires. You should continue to display the expired disc on your vehicle, until the new one arrives.

you must display your old tax disc, as above in my own words you get 5 days into the next month. Take the reference number out with you in case you are stopped.

Actually the 5 day thing is incorrect for this month

If your tax disc expires on the 30 April 2011If your tax disc expires on … If your tax disc expires on the 30 April 2011If your tax disc expires on 30 April 2011 and you apply online or by phone before midnight on 30 April 2011, you can still use your vehicle until midnight 9 May 2011. When using your vehicle you must display your old tax disc. From 10 May 2011 you must display your new tax disc.
