Do It Online - Tax Disc and SORN

Applying for a new tax disk online - or declaring a vehicle SORN - is straightforward.

Do It Online - Tax Disc and SORN
Applying for a new tax disk online - or declaring a vehicle SORN - is straightforward. Simply visit www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk, then select either 'apply for a tax disc now' or 'declare SORN' from the left hand menu. You then enter some further information, e.g. the reference number shown on any reminder form - or the eleven digit reference shown on the V5C registration certificate (log book). You also need the vehicle's registration number.

When the website receives a new tax disc request, it checks the vehicle is insured and has a valid MOT certificate (if applicable). This is done electronically through the Motor Insurance Database and the VOSA MOT database. Assuming everything is in order you then select your preferred disc - six or twelve months.

Tax Now   SORN Now
Payment is by debit or credit card. There is a 2.50 charge for the latter. Discs should be received within five working days.

Once a vehicle is declared SORN (Statutory Off-Road Notification) it cannot be used - or kept - on the public highway. This declaration lasts for twelve months unless the vehicle is either: re-licensed, sold, permanently exported, or scrapped. The vehicle 'keeper' should receive written confirmation within four weeks of completing the online SORN declaration.

My Bike has been on SORN for 5 years with a Fine on one missed occasion. This site will not help me do things easy.

Site very easy to use. Do not like the idea of no tax disc. Open to abuse! Also not being able to pass on paid tax when selling a car????
