Are their penalties for not putting a log book in your name?

Hi, i bought a car not so long ago and i still have not changed the log book into my name meaning i have not payed the tax, but the vehicle is still taxed in the old keepers name.

I am still insured on the vehicle full license etc...

I have been pulled over before and they asked me to get it changed.

I'm going to do it i just wanted to know what could happen if i never changed the vehicle into my name?

    Depends what state you live in.     There is no log book in California.

    My crystal ball is broken so What "could" happen can be answered 2 ways.  Ask a psychic or wait to see "what could happen".

    That very much depends on where you are.

    Eventually, your car will be confiscated.

    the police generally are kind to people like you ..hopefully your get over it ..if in uk the last owner should have sent off a slip ..he then will get a refund of remaining tax ...if he has you are driving an untaxed vehicle the meantime ..stop acting daft
