Found 22nd May 2009
Picking up a car for a friend with MOT, but no tax, but intend to buy tax when going to pick car up.
Question is, can I buy road tax with say 1 day insurance, because after car has been picked up, it will be in storage for a long time.

Cheers

he is buying the car from a private seller not a dealer. Also he will be using the using the car to pick up large items once in a while.

As long as you have a valid cover note, sufficient MOT cover you will be able to buy road fund licence. Keep in mind if you drive the car without insurance you will be breaking the law, but as long as you drive it whilst insured you will be fine.

What do you mean by those two words. ?

I don't think you can. It doesn't matter how long it's valid for but it cannot be "temporarily insured" if I remember rightly.

This sort of question comes up quite often, the answer is yes and no.

No you cant - although the above post interesting. I guess it will depend on the post office
