Do I need to SORN my car?
If you wish to take your vehicle off the road, you’ll need to inform the DVLA with a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). You may wish to SORN your vehicle if its unused, uninsured, if you want to salvage parts, or if you wish to get a refund on any full month’s road tax remaining. A SORN vehicle can’t be parked on a public road, so bare this in mind before updating the DVLA.
Getting Rid of Your SORN Car
If you have a SORN vehicle that is rusting away or is obstructing your driveway, you can donate it with Giveacar. The money raised from your vehicle can be donated to any UK registered charity, giving your unwanted vehicle a new lease of life as it helps others.
We take any vehicle, so long as it has the body, engine and its wheels. We also need you to provide us with the vehicles V5C document, or another item of documentation that shows the registered keeper.

Declare my Vehicle as SORN
