  1. Woad, I apologise for the last sentence of my previous post. It was rude and unbecoming. I certainly will not use those comments when I go to court.

  5. Bought car on evening of the 7th December. Car insured at dealership. Attempted to tax at dealership but website wouldn't allow. Drove car to gf's home and tried online unsuccessfully again a few times but thought must be a site issue. 8th left car parked and commuted to work.

Had leave gf's house early next day for 2 week holiday before Post office opened. Returned to UK on 24t
