Mine is currently SORN and I have sent the pack of forms to DVLA so will see what happens. If necessary I will tax for a month and then cancel it once it is registered as tax free but I hope there will not be a problem as it wastes a lot of time sending things backwards and forwards.

I don't expect anything too fast and have to have an op next week so will not be able to drive it for a few weeks but it would be good to have an idea.
