Buying a used car not taxed

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to buy a used car that has not been taxed in over a year (it's been parked off road on private property). I don't think an off road declaration was made on the vehicle. Will I have any issues when I go to tax and NCT?

    You are responsible for the tax from the 1st of the month in which you bought it.

    No you’ll have no problems. Just change the ownership into your name and tax the car. Any previous tax owed will be cleared

    Also NCT does not care about tax
