Pretty academic but you can in person at the Post Office - I've asked my housemate to do it for me before when I haven't had a chance! (This was a few years ago when he was at Uni and I was doing my placement year)

Yes you can.

HOWEVER if you get a "snot nosed cow who thinks she heard something that she hasnt heard anything remotely like at all relating to the person on the forms being the one who has to purchase the road tax" working behind the counter the answer will be no.

Just like my missus could not get the brain dead bint to sell her tax for BOO last year.

Don't do this if you want to drive the car straightaway and don't have tax, it is an offence to drive without a tax disc, even if it is in the post.

If you do this you need to wait until you actually recieve the disc.

But your chances of actually getting noticed and pulled by a Traffic Cop (excluding Sods Law) are virtually Nil - The car will come up on the Police Computer as Taxed once the disc has been issued regardless of if its on the car or not.

Didn't someone on the forums get a fine for not displaying his tax disc as it had fallen off the windscreen and onto the floor out of sight?

Lol when i bought the honda it had no tax and I got pulled over by the M5 undercover car for not indicating off a roundabout. He saw I had no tax and I said no, I just bought it, I have all the forms bar insurance here including the cash for a years tax. I was told it was ok as long as I put a note in the window saying awaiting documents and that I paid for tax that started at the begining of the current month. Now he could have been talking out of his rear end but at the end of the day I was sent happily on my way. Got his badge number just in case i got pulled again and I was going to say PC # 0001 said it was ok!
