SORNing (Statutory Off Road Notice)

By SORNing a vehicle, the owner does not need to satisfy the vehicle obligations for a certain period (insurance, road tax and any PTI). It is possible to un-SORN a vehicle for free at any time.

Free from sixth vehicle

This collector scheme normally only applies to vehicles aged 15 years or older, and mopeds and low-performance mopeds with an initial licensing date of 31/08/2005 or older on the registration number. This scheme is now therefore temporarily available to all vehicles, irrespective of age. You only need to pay to SORN 5 of these vehicles. SORNing is free from the sixth vehicle.  

Be aware of ending the SORNing within 1 month

If you end the SORNing within 1 month of the start of SORNing, you will still need to pay road tax over the period in which the registration number was SORNed. The Tax Office will then send you a revised tax assessment. See the deze link opent in een nieuw vensterTaxOffice website for more information.
