Mine took 3 months to come through after I scrapped a car and forgot to tell them.

Luckily I sweet talked them and they tore up my cheque :)

Why is she waiting for one? Surely it would be cheaper to buy the road tax? Also without tax you're uninsured!

Yeah, that 3 months would have been for them to actually work out it'd been scrapped.

Not buying tax is a silly thing to do... I'm up to date now, so it's all good :)

im pretty sure they give you something like 2 weeks after it running out to get it. after that, i believe you get the fine even if you tax or not.. or atleast its supposed work like that.

30 days now, shes still not got it.
Now it get really annoying. You can buy tax at the post office, but only starting this month, not last month. To fill-in the last month's tax you've missed, you have to go to the DVLA office, and pay there. If you do this before you get fined, you may get away with it. :)
