Car Tax Due 11 Months After Car Registered?

06 April 2015 - 05:06 PM

I just paid my car tax but thought it wasn't due til the end of April which is a year after the car was registered. The letter I got says it ran out on 31st March, but I didn't notice that the first time I looked at it, just assumed car tax lasts for a year and not 11 months. Is this normal? I'm lucky I didn't get stopped by police for no tax lol. I hope this doesn't catch out anyone else.

Tie Fighter - Short Film

I just came across this on YouTube and thought I have to share it, for any fans of Star Wars or animation in general.



I can't believe it was animated by one person lol, took him 4 years but still, amazing. 

Ford Fair M1 Convoy 2015

20 March 2015 - 11:40 AM

I know it's over 4 months away but I think now is as good a time as any to start planning the convoy :)


This will be for anyone going south on the M1 to get to Silverstone on the morning of 2nd August. Here's a map of my route:




Some of us did this last year and driving down together was one of the highlights of the day, even though there were only 3 cars in the convoy (hoping for more this year). So anyone interested in joining the convoy please post below and I'll make a list :)


I'll update this post as we figure out the details, times etc, but I think I'll want to be leaving Leeds around 5am to 5:30 to make sure we can arrive at around 7:30 but no later than 8. This all depends on who else is joining the convoy and how long we spend meeting at service stations etc, but we have plenty of time to figure all this out closer to the event.


Here's the list:

Clarkson In Trouble Again - RIP Top Gear

I'm surprised there isn't already a thread about this: http://www.bbc.co.uk...t-arts-31828184


I don't know what to think about this lol, it would help if we had some facts but at the moment it seems that there are just allegations.

Clarkson dropped by the BBC:


4-Year Olds Can't Cycle On Pavements??

11 March 2015 - 09:13 AM

I saw this one the news this morning and was quite amused to say the least: http://www.bbc.co.uk...nshire-31805312


What do you guys think of this, especially the police officers among us? Surely a 4-year old cycling with stabilisers on a path isn't doing any harm if they're being supervised.
