Silly UK laws strike again. The offence that you'll be done for is failing to display a valid tax disc. Whether or not the vehicle is actually taxed is irrelevant. You could have had your disc stolen, or it may have blown out of the window (I've had that happen once) - in these circumstances, you must take the car off the public highway immediately (even if you're miles from home) otherwise you're breaking the law.

No doubt a decent copper will give you the benefit of the doubt if you provide them with a plausible explanation. On the other hand, if you meet PC Pedantic and he doesn't like the look of you, then you're in trouble.
