Hi, I was hoping to purchase/collect a seconed hand car this sunday. Just got it insured online with hastings but noticed it said could take 7 days to show up on dvla database, i was hoping to tax the car online tomorrow using the green ‘new keeper’s details’ slip (V5C/2) from the log book, but if it is not showing as insured will it still allow me to purchase the tax?. I dont want to take chance driving home as it ill get picked up on an ANPR camera.

Also if takes upto 7 days to show up as insured on the database then surely every time i pass a police car with ANPR i am going to get stopped?. Anyone else had this problem?.
