Call them?

Have you received and email saying you have payed from the DVLA - normally send you a receipt asap.

Also download the app called MyGarage or something - it shows all details of the vehicle including if it is taxed - to double check everywhere and to make sure.
But definitely look for a receipt from the DVLA... they normally send it out asap and call them if you wanna make sure.

Taxing is instant, it's only the public facing website that has delayed information. No worries.

It should be updated on all relevant databases that the car is now taxed. If you do get stopped, you have a receipt showing that you have paid the relevant tax so you can drive your car with no issues

If you got a receipt you're fine. If you get stopped show them the receipt and you shouldn't run into trouble
