You will need to insure it first .

Then apply to tax it online (zero fee ) . You will need the V5C/2 new keeper supplement 12 digit ref number , so the seller will have to let you know that. see link here

Whether the insurance company data hits the DVLA database instantly or if theres a time lag I dont know

oh- and dont forget the breakdown cover just in case :o

There is a lag, it took about 3 days for my new car to show up as taxed on the dvla vehicle check page which was a bit of a worry.

Or you can just take the new keeper document to a Post Office together with proof of insurance and do it over the counter - I think

Not 100% sure as I did this pre 1 Oct before they got rid of tax disks

Yes you can still tax them at the post office and get a receipt with your vehicle details on it to prove it is taxed until it shows up on the dvla system but you'll still need the insurance to show up on the data base or have the certificate in hand. DVLA wouldn't take you on for tax of nil value as there is nothing in it for them but the cops could do you for not having tax.

this sounds great, i just need to be sure taxing a pre 1960 mot exempt vehicle is easy at the post office, i can ask the local post office this question.
