It sounds to me like the dealer's done a half-arsed job of selling you the car. Unless, that is, you literally walked up on the day, said "I'll have that one", handed over the cash and drove away.
In my experience, dealers routinely leave the cars untaxed on the forecourt and charge you for 6 or 12 months tax when you buy. If they generally made this kind of mess of things, everyone would have this problem.
From what I remember of trading the last Clio in, we gave the insurance company a few days notice and they sent the cover note straight to the dealer. We simply paid the price of the car + 12 months tax, and the car had a fresh disk in the window when we picked it up.
