    From what i know,you can renew your MOT  2 weeks early and it will start from the later date.For example,if it expires on the 15th of Jan you can renew it up to 2 weeks before but the renewal won't start until the 15th.That way you get a full year plus a max 2 weeks on top.

    Tax can be renewed only 2 days before expiration if you don't have the renewal form from the DVLC.If you have the renewal form i believe you can renew it 2 weeks before expiration.

    I am not 100% on the tax querey though mate.

    thing is if i renewed online i wouldnt get the tax disc for a bit, would have to get it sent over to me.

    plus how do you prove your MOT and insurance is sorted when you buy online ?

    im leaving the country for a few months so its not like i want to drive back a couple weeks later just to sort it out. i guess ill have to wait till i get the DVLA tax renewal form in post.

    could i drive in france without a tax disc ? i could renew online so i dont get fined

    above post wasnt clear

    question :

    can i get my MOT renewed 2-3 weeks before my tax expires. If so i can renew my MOT early, my insurance is already sorted so in france i can renew my car tax online ? (get parents to send the disc to me)

    Tax in advance

    You can renew your tax up to two calendar months in advance in person or by post at a Post Office® branch that deals with advance applications or a Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) local office.
    Take or send:
    • Registration Certificate
    • completed V10 ‘Vehicle licence application’
    • insurance certificate or cover note – must be valid when the tax disc comes into force
    • valid MOT certificate - if the car or motorcycle is over three years old - must be valid when the tax disc comes into force
    • the payment for vehicle tax
    • a letter to explain why you’re taxing in advance if you’re making a postal application

    Online youll need the reminder tho and that wont come until closer to the event,it has a code on it.
    maybe you can ring them and request the code early then submit online now
