So, liking to live life 'on the edge', I have booked my car in for M.O.T. today, with 30th April being the last day of my old certificate. The silly little bugger needs new tyres and brake pads for it to pass, which can't be done until Thursday.
Now, I also couldn't get a new tax disc until I had a new M.O.T. (or so I thought) as it, for some reason, wasn't on the DVLA website as being MOTd last time, though I did have the certificate (which I don't now have with me to pick one up today). As such, it'll be Friday at the earliest I can pick up a new tax disc.
Am I breaking the law if I drive the car tomorrow? i.e. out of date tax disc and no official M.O.T.? I'm allowed to drive it to the MOT station on Thursday morning without it being a problem, but I was told by someone or other that there was some grace period of 5 days or something.
I've had a look around on dvla etc, but can't find an answer. Are there any itk guys around here who can help?
