    I purchased a car and needed to drive it back home. I obtained insurance and had mot. If i drive past police with no tax and i am not stopped. Can they still detect my car on tbeir database. Or do they need to be tailing the car. What distance between the two before it flaggs up ?
    My guess is that they don't need to do anything.

    They'll just fine you and send the letter through the post.

    Infinite. They know you have a car that hasn't been taxed so just send you a letter. Simples. As for ANPR they just need to be behind you are passing you. But regardless, if you haven't SORNed your car, expect a letter asking you to pay your tax.

    Why didn't you tax it before driving it.. taxing is instant - I don't see what valid excuse you could possibly have?

    The ANPR system onboard police vehicles can scan loads of number plates all at once and flag up any dodgy vehicles. If you weren't stopped at the time, you won't hear anything of it.

    Do us a favour and get off the roads. We pay tax and so should you.

    I hope you get found out for this.

    This.

    It used to be that you couldn't even insure a car WITHOUT taxing it, but that changed a couple of years ago. :confused:

    You can tax online in seconds. You don't have an excuse.

    Doesn't matter what you did after, you took it on the road untaxed... Why couldn't you sort the tax out before picking it up? Hell, you could've sorted it out seconds before driving away from the dealer..

    You also seem to think that ANPR cameras are only fitted to police cars, which is far from the truth. There are many fixed ANPR cameras across the country on major roads, some of the more obvious ones being SPECS cameras which use ANPR to identify when most vehicles pass through a fixed point and how long it took them to get from point A to B. Whether they also ping back to base like regular ANPR cameras is beyond me...

    If the DVLA use ANPR cameras for monitoring car tax and sending fines to reg keepers, expect to get something in post, because the chances that you went by an ANPR location is pretty good...

    Is it a brand new car? If it is most dealerships will insure the first year for you as a little extra incentive

    ANPR isn't just onboard, they have a network of cameras all over the country (mainly on the motorways), that are constantly scanning cars between junctions so that police can intercept if needed (the only do this if the car is linked to serious crime such as firearms, murder, rape etc)
