if its insured then there is no worries

its only if the car is not insured that you get a fine sometimes.

 

save yourself money.

cancel the insurance now its sorn'd

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Continuous insurance requirement : so if not SORN’d needs insurance even if off the road.

you’ve complied with that, fortunately.

 

Tax and MOT : no requirement provided the vehicle isn’t on a public road (which can include a car park to which the public have access!).

Again, you are fine as was off-road.

 

So relax, you’ve gone the right thing (keeping it insured until SORN’d), and I agree : as SORN’d you can now cancel the insurance!

Surely that's not correct, tax (VED) is due whether the car is on the road or not, unless declared SORN.  That's been the case for quite a few years well before continuous insurance requirements came into force.

Yes, 'On a public road' was removed from s.29, Vehicles Excise & Registration Act 1994 by Sch. 45, Finance Act 2008, now it is 'If a person uses, or keeps, a vehicle which is unlicensed he is guilty of an offence', there are exemptions, one is if the vehicle is subject of a SORN and not used or kept on a public road.
