    i assume the dealer is registering the vehicle and has been supplied an insurance certificate.

    i had to send my tax disc to DVLA and there was a delay in sending me the replacement. DVLA said that the computer reference used by Police would show that the vehicle is taxed so should not be an issue.

    i rekon as long as the dealer has registered and taxed the vehicle it should not be a problem. however, there is an offence of not displaying a valid tax disc, but you would be darned unlucky to get hit until it arrives in the post.

    It's fine. No need to display for 14 days. They're being withdrawn in a few months anyway, and no-one bothers to look for them any more. They just scan the number plate with ANPR and check online.

    they give you paperwork in the dealers, so should anything happen you have proof of just purchasing the vehicle,,so no worries on the not displaying issue...

    Nothing to worry about so long as it is taxed. Easy with a newly registered vehicle.

    We had a problem because ours is second-hand and the V5 is still in the name of the previous owner so couldn't get the tax on-line - our insurance was held up in the MIB database backlog over the bank holiday. All sorted now.
