    What happens if i declare my car as sorn? 15th Nov 10 at 12:58 PM
    Hi, can anyone advise me please....

    My car is due its MOT in early Dec, the mot place warned me last year that this year my car is proberly going to cost me around 350 + to get it through the mot.

    Now i know i should of been planning for this but i haven't and now i pretty sure im not going to beable to afford to get its MOT,car TAX is also due at the end of jan, which i also can't afford at the moment

    my question is if i declare my car SORN and dont use the car ( i have a private driveway) for a few months while i get myself back on my feet, can i then, when i have some cash in a few months time get the mot and tax? is it has simple as that? I Forgot to add that i quite like the idea of having the mot in feb/march instead of just before christmas which as always been a worry

    any ideas? Thanks
