I think if the cheque had been a stolen one it would be easy to trace and your girlfriend would get a visit from the boys in blue.

don't need any docs. Have to use a debit card though.

You can use a credit card online, but there is a fee.

wis - did you actually read the paperwork that came with the tax disc application. It states very clearly that post offices don't take credit cards. As for the cheque payment, that was quite lax, but as lotvic says, if the cheque was returned unpaid the police will have a fairly good idea where to go looking for the culprit, and seeing as it's a government agency that's losing out, they will come looking...

Since the car is also untaxed they will also probably confiscate it!
