    Hey

    Ok, so it's past midnight, my insurance started at 0:01am, but when I try to apply for a tax disc, I get the following message:

    Insurance could not be found
    ...
    PLEASE ALLOW 24 HOURS FOR YOUR INSURANCE RECORD TO BE UPDATED BEFORE YOU USE THIS SERVICE AGAIN.

    IF YOU DO USE THIS SERVICE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS, YOUR TRANSACTION WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL.
    I need to drive my car later today, should I be worried?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't think so. I assume that the car is already taxed. And the insurance documents would say exactly when the cover starts.
    You might get pulled over by police, if that happens that you may have to produce the documents at a police station.

    If your car is not taxed, do not drive it.

    If your car is taxed, but just doesn't have a tax disk, then it is legal to drive it. Police can confirm that it is taxed on record by radioing a request, so if you do get pulled over it's fine.

    I really do appreciate the reply, but you're not answering my question: why the hell is the online tax system playing games with me?

    This service is still not working.

    Do you reckon it'd be worth contacting my insurer and seeing what the problem is?

    Its a Sunday I doubt it will go through. Why not go and get it taxed tomorrow morning at the post office if online still doesn't work? (Assuming your PO's aren't open today) The problem will be that its a Sunday. I had my insurance start from yesterday, but because I arranged it before I assume that is why mine is on there.

    Most servers update their records overnight, and do a full backup on sundays, meaning that it should update tonight at 00:00 ish. So if you tried tonight at 01:00 it will probably work.
