Sorry about this,

Basically my insurance runs out 1st sept, but I am going away 30th for 6 weeks to Kenya, so I am going to SORN it and get insurance just before returning to the UK,

Can any one tell me how easy/long it will take to get it back on the road??

Cheers

I'm pretty sure you can tax it online whenever you are ready with details from your V5 logbook. Perhaps someone can confirm?

Then does it just automatically update to been back on the road? Or go to a post office and tax it?

You can re-tax it online without a reminder. You will need to wait for the new tax disc to arrive (around five days) and then you can use it on the road again.

I imagine it's the same at a post office but obviously you'll get your tax disc there and then.

Yep, DR is spot on. Done it a number of times in the past.
All online is the way.

No - you pay for the tax online, using their automatic system, when you get back.
But, as DR has said, you need the tax disc in your hand and on your car, before you can legally drive on the highway.

If a car tax disc has expired or you have had your car on a SORN, I don't believe it can be done at a Post Office mate.
As well as Online, you can phone the DVLA to sort it.

below is an exert from common questions regarding Sorn from the direct gov website.


"I have made SORN but I now intend to use the vehicle, what can I do?

You should tax the vehicle before you use or keep the vehicle on the public road. You can use our online or phone service if you have the Registration Certificate or the renewal reminder. You will also need valid insurance and either MOT Certificate/GVT Certificate"


So it seems you can't go to the post office to renew it after sorn. But you are only going away for 6 weeks you will only benefit from 1 months worth of tax, do you need to through the hassle of re-taxing and getting insurance for the sake of 6 weeks.

I'd not leave it uninsured, if it gets stolen or fire damaged you won't get a penny!

At least get the cheapest TPFT and just cancel the policy after 6 weeks.
