- Displaying a valid tax disk?
I was shitting myself for the last week
ffs you guys, driving around without a valid tax disc on display is one of the things which makes driving less boring, more interesting, and more challenging.
What chances have the Old Bill got of pulling you up if don’t give them any challenges ?Posted 9 years agoneilb67Member
Had a post card from the DVLA this morning and this is the first paragraph
“From 1 September 2008, if you pay for your vehicle tax by phone or online before the current tax disc runs out, then you can legally drive or keep your vehicle on the road whilst displaying the tax disc that has run out, for up to five days. (Giving time for your new tax disc to arrive by 1st class post).
Hope this clears things up and I will be keeping this card in a safe place till my new disc turns upPosted 9 years ago
WTF!?! I just tried to renew and it said I had no insurance?!?
I called my insurer who just informed me that “we appear to have cancelled your policy in error”
WAHT?!! FHE?!?! TUCK?!?!
and then had the gall to ask “would you like us to quote you for a new policy?” TAHW!?! EHT KCUF?!?!
I’m aghast!! I’ve been driving for the past two weeks with no insurance?!? what if I’d been pulled over?? what if I’d not had to renew my tax?!?!
hmmm. not impressed, so after a boring two hours trawling the interwebs and filling out some of the longest forms I’ve ever I’m now insured with direct line, £300.00 a year fully comp for a car worth only marginally more than that!!
now I need to wait for the insurance details to be sent to the DVLA before I can tax the bloody thing online or the documents arrive so I can do it at the post office!!!
oh well, I guess it means I get to use the bike more!! 😆Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
“we appear to have cancelled your policy in error”
Not entirely 100%, but I think that means, as it’s their error, that had you been in a situation where you needed to claim, they would have to pay out, with no cost or penalty to you. If you reasonably believed that you were insured, then you would not have been prosecuted. Your insurer would have been in deep sh1t, though, probbly.
Don’t Nationwide do car insurance?Posted 9 years ago
