What is a SORN and when do I need to make one?
A SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) is made when you don't wish to renew your tax disc and your vehicle is being kept off the public road. A SORN is valid until your vehicle is taxed, sold or scrapped. Your vehicle must be in and remain in Great Britain to make a SORN.
You can make a SORN online if you are the registered keeper of the motorcycle or scooter. You will need to know your registration number and the reference number on your V5C, or the V11 reminder reference number. You must apply by post if you're recently registered as the keeper or not yet registered.
