You lot know what you're talking about so a quick question Can/will the police seize a vehicle for no road tax? I'm getting a new bike on 1st October trading in my current bike. Unfortunately my current bikes road tax runs out 30th September. The dealer is about 16 miles from my home and ideally I'd just do the 25 mins there on the morning of the 1st and get my new bike but obviously I don't want to get the bike taken off me. Obviously I could just tax it for 6 months and then I'll get parts thereof back under the new system or I could take it down the day before and get a lift home and then back there again the next day. I know, I should just pay the tax, considering 6 months for my bike is only £44 and I'll get some of it back, but my parents were northern so I try to be tight where possible. This is what I'll probably do anyway as I'm a good chap but damn, 16 bloody miles.
