I keep getting this issue where the div isnt expanding around the contents. What I think should happen is that .divTabs should automatically expand to hold the .tab surley?

I keep running into this issue, so obviously something Im missing.

Can someone cast an eye over it and tell me what Im missing?

You mean that .divTabs should expand vertically to create a box around the tabs?

Try adding display:table.

.divTabs {
    border: 1px solid black;
    display: table;
    width: 100%;
