If he kept it on the road, yes. What I'm saying is that when selling the car to you, it's your responsibility to check. He may have broken the law while he had it, but it's your responsibility to check for yourself. tbh, it sounds like he didn't even notice himself if he was parking it on the road: he probably just looked at the tax disk, checked it matched the number plate and was in date and moved on, same as most people would when "just checking" everything's okay.

Legally you've broken the law while you had it on the road - however, you have not broken the law in the sale. The information is freely available to anyone looking at the car's documents.

Potentially there is some scope for it if you specifically described the car as having x months tax, but that isn't actually a description of the car, merely a description of the tax on the car: but since the information is available when looking at the legal documents of the car then you'd have a good leg to stand on.

It is up to the owner of a car to ensure it is properly taxed and insured. It is up to the seller to ensure the car is as described: so the crux of the issue is whether them putting "5 months tax" on the advert or saying it during the sales patter, outweighs the fact the information is right there on the documents. If they don't specifically say that it has whatever tax on it, they've done nothing wrong. Even if they do, it's a grey are as the car is potentially legally taxed.

If you didn't notice yourself, you've not knowingly committed a crime: I can't see anyone being prosecuted for selling the car like that, as the buyer should check themselves. A dealer/tradesman wouldn't be expecting to drive the car on the road, so would have no real reason to check out of hand.

I have bought 2 cars in very recent years (this year and last year) from independant dealers, and while 1 was taxed and the other wasn't, they are still 'technically' uninsured* I believe, so for both test drives the dealer either popped it in the car (in the case of my old car) or sat in with me (in the case of me new car) with his trade plates on display


* insured as stock on the forecourt, uninsured without trade plates displaying for use on the road or something?
