    As usual, the car needs to be insured and MoTed. I'd buy it online unless you need to pay cash. Then you just need the number from your V5C.

    I SORN'd my clio when I was working away. When I returned MOT had ran out.

    Simply called the MOT station to arrange a booking. Once passed obtained tax the usual way at the post office. Filled in a form I found from the .gov website and the cashier didn't even look at it!

    I hate going to the post office to tax a car. I always get stuck behind Doris who is buying 1 stamp but takes 2 hours to do it.

    Then no matter what I take with me, they say I have the wrong documents. Online ftw.

    I'd do it online now to get it to start 1st Dec.

    Then when it arrives probs thurs/fri, I'd stick it in the car and start driving..

    Yeah I believe you can drive 4-5 days with old tax disc once new ones been ordered. Keep a receipt print out if you can.

    Online is much better but with me getting an MOT same day I had no choice.

    Yep, read the fine print on the site when I did mine, you can display your old tax disk for up to 5 days as long as the new tax disk has been purchased before the current has expired.
