no you will have to declare it off the road with the dvla
#2
And you can't park it on the road when declared sorn either

If you only want it for a short period, you can get a temporary insurance - we did for a week on a 2.0l car and it cost us around £23.

Asked for it to be moved to misc.

Only if you want 6 points and £300 fine, like me :oops:

Wait a minute - the car has tax. You only declare it off road if you have no tax !!

I think you can keep it on the road, but if it gets robbed your screwed.

Call the DVLA

No for it to be on the road in anyway shape or form it must have insurance:thumbsup:

I stand corrected :)

You do need insurance - when you go to buy tax you have to provide a vaid insurance certificate as well as an MOT certificate. If you get flagged by an ANPR vehicle the penalty is quite hefty which is not worth the risk, I'd make sure you get the car off the road.

Are you just selling it straight on pretty much? If not and the car is going to be sitting around doing nothing it would be worth declaring it SORN and getting the money back from the remaining tax.

That's right, don't know why people keep banging on about the tax issue as it's taxed. For legal reasons the term 'used on a public highway' also covers parking on said highway:thumbsup:
