I'm hoping that someone wil be able to provide me with a little advice reference Taxing my car. My UK Car Tax is due on the 28th Feb 13 however, I travel too and arrive in Harsewinkel, Germany on the 23rd of Feb. It is my intention to BFG my car ASAP - my first day in work is the 11 Mar 13 however, it is my intention to action all of the personal admin required prior to my first working day. My question is, do I need UK road tax to BFG my car / travel in Germany? My guess would be that my insurance policy would not cover me if I chose to drive without tax.... Over to you. Squip.
