Sorn renewal
    Name: Andy Town: Brighton
My bike failed an MOT and Iím planning on scrapping it entirely - this takes and I need to SORN the vehicle as itís on the road, although itís still taxed and is insured - Tried to SORN it online and I think Iím too late, it expired a few weeks ago. No letters have been sent by DVLA yet, despite the MOT lapsing. Bit concerned but have a friend whose garage I can use.
New rules that came out mean that you only have to register for a Sorn once and you do not need to renew it

Hello! I havenít used my motorbike for over a year, and everything has expired: MOT, insurance, road tax. Iíve had it on SORN for a few months and Iím now finally able to renew everything. What are the correct steps to ensure I donít break the law and donít have problems renewing? Thank you.
You only have to be insured which allows you to ride your bike to a pre booked test

Car Insurance
    Name: Janet Town: BECKENHAM
My MOT failed on two accounts: 1 the windscreen needs replacing, 2 the garage needs to repair a head light. I arranged for wind screen to be replaced at my house - the company has rearranged it as heavy rain prevented them from doing the work. They cannot replace the windscreen now until after I have had the repair done at the garage. The problem is my insurance will have then expired and I donít think I can insure it without a valid MOT. This means I will have to drive it to the garage without a valid MOT and with out a valid insurance. What can i do - if stopped and asked for a document check am I covered. On reflection this means I will have to drive it to the garage for the repair, them bring it home to have the windscreen repaired then to the garage again to have it retested and drive home before I can renew the insurance. Is that OK
I am sure your insurers will reinsure you on the condition you are using it to get an mot you are not allowed to drive a car on public roads without valid insurance and you can be liable to prosecution

lapsed MOT
    Name: Anil Town: Hayes
I was driving and had an accident. Its difficult to derive who was at fault. But, later I realised that the MOT of the other car had expired one week back. Will the other driver be totally responsible.
It would depend on the condition of the vehicle you can fail if your wipers are not working or if there is a bulb out the main factor is if the car is not roadworthy but still the onus of proof is who was at fault depends on the evidence
