Statutory Off-Road Notification (SORN)

The Statutory Off-Road Notification (SORN) tells the DVLA that your vehicle is off-road, unused, and untaxed.

Statutory Off-Road Notification (SORN)
The Statutory Off-Road Notification (SORN) tells the DVLA that your vehicle is off-road, unused, and untaxed. The declaration can be made online, at www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk. Alternatively, telephone: 0300 123 4321 and quote the reference number of your V5C registration certificate. Once the vehicle is SORN, you can complete DVLA Form V14 to receive a road tax refund. Send the completed paperwork to DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AL.

If you have not completed a SORN - and the vehicle is untaxed - an 80 penalty automatically applies.

This is sent from the DVLA database, so there is no need for the vehicle to be spotted by a police officer. Your machinery can also be clamped and removed. A County Court Judgement may be issued too - along with a minimum 1,000 fine. Equally, a false SORN declaration can result in a 5,000 fine and imprisonment.

Are vehicles used exclusively on a golf course which is open to the public entitled to be registered as SORN?
