Do I need my insurance certificate to tax my vehicle?

No, in most cases you can now tax your vehicle online, or by phone, provided that you're the registered keeper and your name, address and any changes you've made to your vehicle have been updated on DVLA/DVANI records. If you've just taken out a policy it can take up to 7 days for your insurance information to reach the Motor Insurance Database (excludes Northern Ireland).
