Default Renewing tax online - Principal Insurance issue?

Lads,

Weird one for yis. I'm trying to tax the bike online.

I was with Cornmarket/Adelaide but because they've stopped doing bike insurance I've switched to Principal Insurance Limited, Unit 45, Block 5, Northwood Court, Santry, Dublin 9.

On the motortax.ie website Principal isn't listed in the drop-down menu of insurers so I can't proceed with the 'transaction'. Anyone else come across this? I need to have a tax disc, God forbid someone could read my reg plate...

I always put in something along the lines of 1234noneofyourfcukinbusiness.

My insurance is nothing to do with the motor tax office.

They noted my driving licence had expired during last year and had to email them a pic of my new licence, guy on the phone was reading a list of stuff off for about 5 mins to me and asking had I any criminal convictions etc in the last year etc .

That's who I am insured by.

Principle are just an insurance broker when it comes down to it.

Pretty much what I do every year, 123abc and whatever company on the list that I think could do with the click cos that's all it is, they'll still take your money.

Genuine question, mine was out end of Jan, if I renew before the end of Feb do I avoid having to pay back tax, or do I have to pay back tax straight away?

The one problem with doing that is whatever information you put in there goes onto the National Vehicle information file attached to the bike.

Which is what the Gardai use to check registration numbers.

So if they were to check your number & "Noneofyourfuckingbusiness" came up in the insurance section they might get very interested in you all of a sudden

I'm not uninsured. If any guard wants to see proof of insurance then that's not a problem. It's connecting insurance to tax, or worse again tax to insurance that I object to. "Oh the car wasn't taxed so we're going to void your insurance".

What's next? Please provide your TV licence details?

They're completely separate transactions. One is with the state, the other with a private company. Neither is any fcukin business of the other's at point of purchase of either!

I was a bit late paying my tax, I paid online as soon as I got the reminder. They charged me for the back tax Beggers
