    Bought a car with no log book 16th May 07 at 2:15 PM

    I bought a car about two months ago and have still not recieved the log book in order to tax the car.I have had to insure the car for obvious reasons and the car has been stuck on the drive for the last seven weeks so I have lost nearly two months insurance , and extra travelling costs.

    Firstly is there some sort of legallity surrounding the selling of the car without a logbook and basically no tax ?

    And secondly is there a financial implication involved where I can claim the money back which has been wasted by the car just sitting on the drive.
