Question Am i covered?

Just bought a new car, but it has no tax on it.
I can't buy tax until my cover note comes through.
Can i drive it without tax in the mean time?

Re: Am i covered?

If you were stopped i'd be surprised if you could get away with "Well officer, i'm just waiting for my cover note to come through"

You'll probably end up with a producer, so if you do drive make sure the cover note will be coming through within the next 7 days!

Re: Am i covered?

Again, the answer is NO i'm afraid. Probability is a police officer would offer tyhe produce documents option, but its not worth the risk. I thought the law now required dealers to tax a car before selling it? Thats what a VW dealer told me.

Spoke to my insurance people they said they will rush through my cover note so i will get it tomorrow.

Unfortunatly I will still have to get it home today will just have to take a chance.

Some garages will tax a car for you but I have found in general they cant be bothered when my wife bought her last car 6 months ago she had to take her insurance docs etc to the dealer and then they did it for her this I must add was not free tax she paid for it

Re: Am i covered?

Garages ain't supposed to let you drive the car away unless you've got insurance and Tax, they'll arrange the tax for you, but only once they've got a copy of your cover note!
