... my original query was trying to see if anyone had got mot exemption on a car without a current mot as mine is on sorn and has been on sorn for a number of years and is now over 40 years old and being restored.
So, has anyone actually done it?
It's really easy, as others have said. It does need to be in the Historic tax class though. My Coupe had been off the road since before SORN was introduced so I needed to change the tax class from PLG to Historic. You need to do this at a PO that issues car tax so I took the amended V5C along, together with a V112, and they taxed it for me. I even got a receipt for £0! I received a new V5C from the DVLA about a week later.
It will need to be insured, of course, otherwise the DVLA will rescind the tax (the PO doesn't check the insurance status). Once you have the updated V5C you can tax the car online next year.
