It doesnt matter at this point whether it was a box 1 or box 2. It is overdue and will need a full inspection regardless. The only difference between the two is that one gives you 30 days to correct the problems and have it inspected, while still being insured, while the other involves having your plates seized and vehicle towed.
If the vehicle is compliant then have it inspected and then get insurance. If its not, its likely something you were aware of (the issues, not the outstanding VI) before purchasing the car.
"Never give a match up halfway through. Never say that you do not feel up to it, that your condition is bad, and throw in the towel. Fight to the very end, always looking for your chance to break through." - Kazuzo Kudo
