Shall move this to the insurance forum where maybe a bit more of use :L
no problem in taxing online, but in the post office is where they take issue, unfortunately I can't tax online as I am not the 'registered keeper' as far as the DVLA are concerned as they have not received the forms yet52graphite said:Also, there's no problem renewing your tax online if you're insured with Swiftcover.
It is but they are supposed to have discretion and in the past have accepted documents printed from swiftcoverstreetboy said:thought it was common practice for the post office to only accept documents which were originals and not photocopied, faxed or copies downloaded by the policy holder.
Didn't think you could tax a vehicle with tempory insurance? Or do dayinsure do 12 month policies as well? onder:thelongmile said:I was at the post office this evening trying to tax my new car with a printed covernote from dayinsure since my current documents had not arrived
I can see that, my problem is that I was insured, and still am legally but have not had my documents through yet, brought the car untaxed so now can't drive it until it is taxed, frustrating given the frankly appalling state of the british postal serviceMarney said:Was gonna say, not round here you cant and have had quite a few customers on the phone disappointed after buying temp cover to tax vehicles.dayinsure website said:Yes. dayinsure short term insurance is suitable. (At the sole discretion of the individual post office and we cannot guarentee that it will be acceptable).
Dunno why it's legal as what's to stop people buying temp cover just to tax the vehicle and then driving uninsured rest of the time? Car would look legal parked up to traffic wardens etc
I had a one-month policy on my bike when I first acquired it, pending termination(by me) of my previous policy and awaiting my NCB. I had no problems taxing at the Post Office... TBH I've also done it with a certificate I printed out here...Marney said:Didn't think you could tax a vehicle with tempory insurance?

Congratulations Marney it appears you actually read the first post where I pretty mush said thatMarney said:Where did you bring the car from? :whistling:
Anyways, to sumarise, we've gone from wild panic to you may, or may not, be able to get tax with a Swiftcover printed covernote or a temp insurance covernote, depending on your local Post Office!
