I have a couple of bikes that have sat in our garage for years but for some reason I didn't SORN them. Can't believe I didn't - the only thing I remember is that I thought I didn't have to. I never ride/drive without tax, MOT and insurance so this is untypical of me.
So - am I liable for a fine when I try and get new V5's (as we've moved)? The bikes are currently unrideable, I haven't ridden them for years and we're likely to scrap one.
Will it make any difference that they're now so old that they don't need a tax disc?
DH has old bike in pieces in the garage which he is gradually re-assembling. SORN only required for bikes that have been previously taxed since 31 January 1998. Don't know if that helps (re-assembling is very gradual and his bike not been on the road for over 15 years!)
