    You now have a leeway of 5 days if you have ordered it online and waiting for it to be delivered

    That's not true.

    All it states online is that your tax disc will take up to 5 days to arrive. It's still an offence to drive your car with no valid tax disc displayed even if you've already paid for it online.

    You need to make sure if ordering online you do it about a week before it is due for renewal :thumbsup:

    :thinking: how are you not wasting money by renewing it then?

    If you renew it earlier it still covers the same period for the same amount of money.

    just get it done at the post office, there and then. Why risk a fine?

    Provided you dont get noticed by a policeman who is having a bad day. Can still be done for failure to display 'technically'. If car is on public road it can be towed away and you could technically be faced with charges for retrival.
    Sorry to be a doom monger. Hope you only meet human coppers and traffic attendants till you are taxed.

    closed @ ops request. thank you
