Hi. Looking for some advice please.

 

I purchased a 2nd hand car on 14th March 2017. Once the purchase has been sorted I paid 6 mths Road Tax before I driving the vehicle.

 

At the end of May I learned that in fact despite paying the garage the road tax the vehicle was actually not taxed.

 

Obviously I immediately taxed the vehicle before driving it.

 

I have phoned the garage to ask for a refund (have receipts​) of the road tax I paid them.

 

I wonder if there is any other options available?

 

I'm concerned that I've been driving a car with no road tax which apart from invalidating my insurance had I been involved in an accident, I could have been pulled by police too with serious consequences.

Garage accepts they didn't do it. I just don't find it acceptable that's what they have done. Although haven't received it yet they SAY they will refund the £.

Just an aside, not having VEL on a vehicle does NOT invalidate insurance thumbup.gif

 

I've seen this mentioned a few times on here (not just this thread) and it's simply not true.
