Cart or Horse??
I don't remember a problem when I bought my new van. The dealer had a list of numbers from which I could choose one. I chose one and got a cover note for it and the dealer took it to the DVLA office. They issued a tax disc and authorisation to make up number plates and the V5c arrived a week or so later.
I did exactly the same when I purchased my new van, dealer gave me 5/6 registrations to choose from, selected 1 and insured from there, the insurance company (Safeguard) sent certificate to dealer who then taxed the van for me.
Ask your dealer to do same.
Do unto others as they do unto you,and then **** off before the law arrives.
