Motoring Question In Regards Of Road Tax

Recommended Posts

Hello peeps. 


I want to ask someone who knows their stuff, without any speculation, if i can drive my car or not. I bought a car from dealer yesterday, all paperwork sigbed, transferred my insurance etc. But road tax is expired, car was repossessed after failed finance, and only had V62 form, instead of V5C or V11. Now im anxious to drive it until it actually shows that it is taxed.

Not really, it requires some reference numbers from V62 form and I dont have it, only dealers can send them out. Well, at least ive been told so, so i only filled in direct debit form that they will register in post office...

My dealer did online tax front of me in my name and then sent off all the documents,although it wasn't exactly the same as your scenario.


In reality you can try to get away with it but the truth is if you're stopped or ANPR'd it could become messy.

You'd also have to park it on a driveway at home until it was taxed.

You should be able to tax it at a Post Office with a V62 as long as it is showing insured and MOT’d on the DVLA database.

According to this you need the V5C logbook or your V5C/2 if you’ve just bought the vehicle or V11



If you don’t have any of these, you need to apply for a new V5C. Fill out a V62 form, which you can pick up at your Post Office. The cost is £25.







If you do not have a V5C or new keeper slip

If you’re the current keeper, you must apply for a new V5C and tax your vehicle at a Post Office. This costs £25 and it can take 4 to 6 weeks to get the new V5C.

If you’re the new keeper, you cannot tax your vehicle without a new keeper slip.


You’ll need to apply for a new V5C (you can also get the form from the Post Office.) This costs £25 and it can take 4 to 6 weeks to get the new V5C.
