Does anyone know where I stand with this - I've returned a written off vehicle to the road before, but on the previous occasion it came from a salvage yard, with no v5, tax or MOT. We repaired the vehicle (the original scrapheapchallenge), applied for V5, got VIC check, got V5, got MOT, got Tax, got insurance, job done.
HOWEVER, on this occasion it's my own car, it already has a full MOT and about 5 months tax on it, has been written off while I stored it and retained salvage, and I still have the V5. I will start repair as soon as I get the payment for the value of the vehicle.
So, what next, in terms of paperwork, am I going to have to fork out on a new MOT again even though it had literally only JUST had one when the accident occurred? Do I have to apply for tax again, should I cancel the tax on it, claim it back then re-apply? as I already have a V5 where does this stand with the VIC check etc? I'm guessing you have to give it back so they can endorse it with the words "this vehicle has been substantially repaired and/or accident damaged"
Anyone any idea what order I get things done in and how?
