Hi All

I'm picking a new CLK320 tomorrow but I've just been told the cover note has the wrong registration :crazy:

The insurance company have offered to fax the garage a cover note tomorrow morning, but I'm wondering if this would be accepted by the post office?

Cheers

Gav.

I've got away with it before, but it's not suppossed to work.

No tax for a few days is not a major crime.

Graham,

Cheers. I guess it's down to a garage as well?

If it's a brand new car it shouldn't matter. The dealer can register and tax it without your insurance somehow, they done this with mine. They will need to see your insurance before they let you drive away in it though.

Forgot to mention the garage took the incorrect cover note to the post office and they didn't check it correctly, so I got my tax :)

Cheers

Dealers dont run round to the nearest P>Office to tax a new car-they do it themselves.Look at the stamp on the disc when you get it,it will have "dealer" stamped on it.

Also found out last week that the DVLA have banned insurance companies from faxing insurance documents to dealers becuase of the tax issue. Cover notes are OK to fax, but not certificates etc they told me.
