    car regestered as sorn

    whats the quickest and best way to get a car taxed if it is registered as SORN ??

    The car is in my name and I declared it SORN, now the car has been sold and I have got an MOT for it and the new owner has got it insured. Whats the best way to get it insured? As I dont want to have to send the V5 off for change of keeper and wait 2-3 weeks so that we can tax it.

    Any gen would be great

    you can just go to the post office and tax it when its been sorn'd.

    As you have sold it the new keeper should be able to take the log book and tax it and just explain what the situation is or you may have to go with them. the other way is if you are still insured you could tax it?

    I am not insured on the car though - so really it should be the insurer and keeper that taxes it ???

    You can get your Tax online now remember.

    Also, they can check if your insured and MOT'd whilst your doing it so it should be ok

    I use the post office as its just as quick as been online (if you are already out that is) but the only thing is the post office might query why its your name on the log book and his on the insurance but thats only if you get a awake post lady (no offence mentto anyone). thats why if you go with the guy when he pics the cars up then if there is any questions you can explain everything and show ID if really needs be to prove things are as they are!

    surely every 6 or 12 months you are renewing your old tax so I assume thats a yes.

    At the worst, they will know your currently SORN'd and they will request that you take all the documents to a Post Office.

    Post office was not happy when I went in instead of using the internet.

    I bought my car when it was declared sorn, all i did was insure it as it had a full years mot then just had to wait on my insurance details coming through and taxed it, i didn't have to wait for the change of owner to come through.

    You will need to go to the post office with teh V5 with the change of keeper section filled out, MOT if aplicable and the person buying the car will need their insurance certificate.

    Insuring online wont work as it takes time for the insurance to go through, and also the keeper details wont match.
