Can I buy Road Tax online with a cover note?


Purchasing temporary insurance cover online does not automatically update the DVLA database. Although we submit insurance data to the Motor Insurance Database (MID) at the end of each day, it is dependant on how soon the information is uploaded and made available to the DVLA.

Usually, the insurance details will be visible within 48 hours of purchase; excluding weekends and public holidays. If you urgently need to obtain Road Tax, then visiting the Post Office is an option. Some Post-offices will accept insurance documents for only 1 days' cover, however this is not guaranteed and must not be replied upon. In the event that the certificate is not accepted for the purpose of obtaining a tax disc, there would be no refund of any monies paid.
