A question about Tax discs
Ok fellas here's my dilemma and it's probably a stupid question to ask but I'm asking anyway:
My car road tax ran out a few days back (hasn't been driven) Now I've come down from work (somewhere up north) and went to the post office to get a new one, BUT I never had my new insurance papers (They're still up north) which really Pi**es me off cause I want to drive it.
Anyway to cut the long story short I applied for one on-line (as they can check the insurance and mot on line) and I should have it within 5 days, my question is would it be ok to drive my car on the road for the next week or so while waiting for the new disc to arrive? I'll be carrying a receipt of my on-line order "in case" I get stopped by the police but would they accept my situation or not?
