I am a car trader, i have motor trade insurance, and all vehicles are purchased via main agents, put `in trade` using the yellow slip, and stay in my custody or control until sold.
Being `in trade` as i recall means i dont have to tax insure the car etc. If the car needs moving, or for demonstration i use trade plates.

I can only keep 7 cars at home so i use a couple of private parking areas. I have a friend with a flat in each so use the many many available parking spaces as i dont have premises. Private car par, private land.

So i went to my cars yesterday and the cars had been clamped, clearly reported to dvla. Maybe dvla hadnt checked they were in trade and it stated they had been reported to dvla and clamped. The company that clamped them i believe is NSL and they have a compound in west bromwich.

A quick look on the gov.uk website tells me these cars need to be sorned, but how can i take a sorned car onto the road for a text drive? Or for an mot?

So this morning i need to make some calls and am asking your incredible brains where i stand with this.

i have read this....

https://www.gov.uk/sorn-statutory-off-road-...n/motor-traders

It doesnt make good reading especially as i dont have `business premises` which actually means i cant park them at home without SORN, and if i do and their on a test drive im then also comitting anoffence

So why would my house not be the same??


It may well be.

Especially if it is a new build.

Trading is often excluded in modern leases and covenants.

so if you lived in a house, and your girlfriend had a place with space, and you parked there, whats the problem...also not ALL traders have a forecourt and showroom.

I don't think you ever mentioned whether the spaces you use are dedicated to your use, or whether you just have a permit to use any space that happens to be free at the time.

Ok so the fines have arrived for the cars that were not clamped but reported for no tax.

vehicle 1 bought by me 10.6.19 seen 17/7/19 asking for £105 = £300 a year tax
vehicle 2 bought by me 10.6.19 seen 17.7.19 asking for £49 = £145 A YEAR TAX
vehicle 3 bought by me 6.6.19 seen 17.7.19 asking for £60 = "235 a year tax
vehicle 4 bought by me 28.5.19 seen 17.7.19 asking for £46 = "125 a year tax

Can anyone explain the variation reasons, all vehicles seen on same day, all vehicles are `in trade` although we all now know on 17/7/19 they were seen on the public highway albeit a car park matters not i am still guilty of the offence.

Different CO2 ratings? Tax amount being based on CO2 and all that.

ive added the annual tax and it doesnt add up, i would have expected x months times ££ plus an admin fee, but that doesnt stack up either, and the most bizarre thing is the ones that were clamped dvla have confirmed they have no interest in the back tax and have not chased, funny old game
