Such an idiot…

Tax DiscI can be so dim sometimes!

I received my vehicle licensing reminder (V11) in the post a few weeks ago and then suddenly realised last night that my tax disc expires today!

So, I bought my Certificate of Motor Insurance and my MOT Test Certificate to work with me this morning and went straight to the Post Office to get a new tax disc. I handed my documents over to the woman behind the counter, who quickly pointed out that my MOT certificate expired last June.

Realising that I had bought the wrong one with me, I decided that I would have to drive home and get the right one to ensure that I would be able to renew my tax today – I am petrified of the new vehicle licensing adverts that claim that the computer can tell if you haven't renewed your tax and will automatically send you a fine!

I drove home and went straight to my boxfile with all important documents in (i'm very organised!) – only to discover that it was not in there. Suddenly panicing, I went back out to check the car, to find that the MOT certificate had been in the glove box all along and that I had not needed to make the hour round journey home at all!

What a waste of a lunch hour!! Grrr
