As long as the car still holds a valid MOT when you need to tax it you should be OK IMO. There are certain exclusions as to how far in advance a new MOT can be issued. Ask vendor to check current MOt and see when it states the new one can be issued. Usually three weeks or so I think so maybe they will ask you to renew MOT.

As long as the MOT hasn't run out when you tax it you'll be fine

You can in theory get a 13month MOT cos you can MOT the car a month before the current one runs out and if it passes they run the new one from then till 12 months after the current one runs out if that makes sense.

Oh yeah and as above need it insured easiest would be to get the seller to tax it and add it on the asking price
