Just buy a new tax disc there is no need to buy a new car :lol

You will get a penalty not sure how much tho. Declare it SORN until u can afford it, make sure ur car is off the road tho :thumbsup:

you have 5 days after the disc expires to tax it

It used to be a 14 day grace period, dunno what it is now.

there is no grace period at all

if you're lucky the police may leave it alone, if you're unlucky you could get it seized


sorry dogcop, you're wrong bud.

+1.

had to check up on it twice this year.

Declared two cars SORN for about 2 weeks

apply online see if someone could pay it for you then give them the money back, i think once you applied online your ok as it shows on the system.

There is now a grace period (to display) if you buy it online, why not put it onto a credit card?

Unless you have filled in a SORN, your car must be taxed at all times. There is no "grace" period which some people seem to think.

:-D:santa:

I hope you get on with your neighbours and their not the type to report all the untaxed cars in the street.

maybe best to put one of those plastic frost covers over the window till you get it taxed

I had the same problem a few years ago.. go to the post office on Tuesday with all your papers and put on a sweet face and just throw yourself at the cashiers mercy.. I did this and she just stamped everything and put the paperwork in her out-tray and told me all the paperwork gets delayed at this time of year.. just grovel nicely

But using your reasoning Dog_cop should he believe what it says on the "police" web site or what someone on the misc forum who says he's a policeman says is right? (not that I doubt you are a policeman) We are going by what it says on your website. are we wrong to do that?

in regards to the original question, no they will not ask u about it when u go to renew it, if its a few days late.

make sense man. typical old bill. :roll: I know an education isnt a pre-requisite to becoming a copper these days but still...........

no wonder the arrest rates of real criminals are at all time lows. No such thing as proper policing these days. Too busy sitting around on their fat @rses :whistling:

All this chatter doesn't make dog_cop right, as I originally posted, if you buy the tax then you have a five day grace period to display. It is not a five day grace period to tax your car.
