I have not received the tax disc. Can I use the vehicle without the tax disc displayed?

 

When you apply for a tax disc online or by using our phone service you are able to legally continue to drive your vehicle for up to 5 days after the tax disc has expired while you wait for the new tax disc to arrive. This will only apply when you have applied for a new tax disc before the current one expires. You should continue to display the expired disc on your vehicle, until the new one arrives.

Personally, I think I would print out the confirmation reference number that you will have been given when you paid on-line and keep it in the car tomorrow, just on the off chance the police happen to stop you.

I am not so sure. I believe if you are stopped, although you have paid for a new VED the offence would be 'failing to display a valid VED'

If the tax disc is continuing on from the previous one, as long as you you have applied online you can still use your car for 5 days. As said previously keep a copy of the confirmation in the glove box just in case

I think, in essence, because the DVLA have authorised you to continue displaying your old tax disk, that effectively maintains your old disk as "being valid" for those further 5 days.
