    Strange question for an electricians forum but hey what do I know.
    Car insurance is usually sold by the year so if you buy it and pay the premium and have a cover note and a valid MOT certificate you're good to go I'd say (sick of typing the word and by the way) It would probably be best to check with someone with more expertise than me though
    Want me to check with my oldest brother? He used to be a traffic cop

    When you apply for a vehicle excise licence you need to have a valid insurance covering the vehicle for the day you are taxing the vehicle.

    I reckon the best people to ask would be an insurance company. AFAIK if you haven't got an MOT you're allowed to drive straight to a garage to get it tested, but presumably you still need insurance and the insurance company might impose some kind of restrictions if you haven't got a valid MOT.

    Tony is right, legally you only need it for the day you get it taxed ! There are companies that do one day insurance policies as well if you shop around!

    but then drive the day after with no insurance and the boys in blue can snatch the motor and crush it.

    there are companies who do Month by month insurance EXTORSIONATE because you pay for your insurance by direct debit this isnt monthly insurance its a credit agreement thus you have paid for the years insurance and if you cancel you MAY have to pay in full depending on the contract Check out the "Money saving expert" guy he was talking about this on radio2 the other week
