    Car Insurance break

    Car Insurance break 7th Feb 18 at 8:26 PM
    Thinking of taking my car off the road for a couple of years at least as I dont use it and I never go out.

    How easy is it to get NCB re-instated after a break I have 15 years NCB?

    Also how easy to get the car back on the road after letting tax and MOT lapse?

    Thanks in advance.

    Most insurers will accept old NCD that is up to 2 years since it was issued


    You get it insured and MOT'd and "unsorn" & tax it.

    It is an offence to let the tax lapse. A car needs to be taxed or SORNed. If you take your car off road SORN it.

    When you put it back on the road you get insurance first, then book an MOT . You can drive to a pre-booked MOT without tax. Then you can tax it.
