Anyone who has picked their 14 plate received the tax disc or V5 doc yet? The wife received hers a week before the 1st March. No sign of mine yet.
Correct on both accounts, the dealer should have given you some documentation to keep in the car.Not received either yet.
The dealer said you are allowed to drive for 14 days without displaying the tax disc.
They also said that from October this year, we will no longer need a tax disc to be displayed on the car.
When I picked up my car the tax disc was damaged and they had to go to the local licensing office to get a new one. They didn't say I could take the car and actually paid for a pub lunch whilst we waited. Maybe its just their policy.You are driving off the forecourt on the basis it is paid for - same law that allows you to drive your car on the old tax disc so long as you have paid for the new one online and are waiting for it to arrive in the post. Maybe some dealers do it online and it gets posted out...?
Mine was in the window on pickup though.
