Well I got a letter to say that I had not taxed the van and you know what, they were right, it was about 20 days over. So I just paid but monthly, it is only a bit more than paying in full and not as much as paying for six months twice. It is done and out of the way now anyway.
Although the MOT is due very soon, better get that seen too next.
The van insurance is on until the end of March next year, so that is fine.
