Hello,

I am afraid you may only make a SORN online if you are the registered keeper or by post if you recently becase the registered keeper.

You cannot make a SORN over the telephone.

Sorry

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
You may plead guilty by post if you do not wish to visit court.

The court will then fine you if you plead guilty.

I do not think it is fair when vehicle is not on road. it was even taxed. must be something I can do in the mean time rather than sit&do nothing

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
I am afraid that the law requires a vehicle to be insured if it has not been SORNd .

Sorry I can only advise you in the law
