Just about to get another van. The one I'm getting isn't taxed at the moment. Am I supposed to get it taxed before I pick it up? I'm not going to get the registration documents until I've paid for it which would be when I collect it. I have just read the following,
If you (as the buyer) have a V5C/2, you can tax your vehicle
at a Post Offi
branch that issues tax discs if you do this within two
months of the date you bought the vehicle, or within 13 months at a
DVLA local offi
Does this mean I can get it and backdate the tax disc? Would I be just as well getting some trade plates to get me home and then sort it out?
