Second hand cars

KCC Trading Standards is advising you to make sure the car you want is the right deal before you buy it.

What to do when buying a car:

Vehicle tax

You are not able to transfer vehicle tax so you must make sure you buy tax for a car you have just bought. You can still buy car tax at your local Post Office or online. If you do not buy tax you could receive a fine of up to £1000.
