Because under the new mot vhi exemption, if it’s currently taxed, you can’t declare the exemption, as you will only be able to declare exemption when you apply for tax.
Where is that documented?

It’s in this guidance document but I don’t believe that you really can’t declare MOT exemption when the MOT runs out?

In fact, it’s right at the end of that document:

“If the vehicle does not have an MOT and you wish to continue using it on the public roads, you will have either to undergo an MOT or, if you wish exemption from the MOT, to declare that the vehicle is a VHI”

A small point to add here as to why you might keep a car taxed after the mot runs out.......you can keep it on the road ( parked) and there is absolutely nothing that can be done about it as long as it’s insured!!
Surely this can't be correct - by definition, comprehensive insurance requires the vehicle to be roadworthy and have current MoT, so no MoT means it is *not* insured. I don't know, but I'd have thought a similar condition applies even with basic RTA-only cover. And if it was towed as soon as the tax expired, how come it's sat there with an "Untaxed vehicle" sticker?
