Hi there folks, good morning!


The thing is that I am planning to take my car out the country for a permanent exportation and I have received by post a v11 reminder of tax. I have been in touch with DVLA via email and messenger and asked them about sorn the vehicle with the reference number shown on it and the SORN would start from the first day of the next month. Well, I have been told that if I apply with this reminder i am covered to drive until the last day of this month by midnight and I did it finally.

Today I have checked DVLA website and my car appears as SORNED , but doesn´t say anything when since and my car was taxed until the end of this month so I thought that the SORN would appear in the database from the first day of the next month no straight away because the tax was paid whole month.

I trust them but I wanted to double check with you if everything is OK.


Thank you so much in advance guys

From what you say its now SORN and cannot be driven on the public roads, as you have used part of this months VED you won't get a refund for this month.

It sounds like you've lost a month of tax and if you want to drive for the rest of the month you would need to tax the car again. You should have SORN'ed the car on 30 April to be honest. I would give them a call, explain the mix-up and see if they can re-licence the vehicle for the rest of the month, no guarantees it will work but it won't hurt to ask.

Done ❗
I gave them a call to explain the situation and my vehicle appears as sorned starting 1st of May even though in their web site appears sorned now and I clarified my need of being taxed whole month due to permanent exportation at the end of the month.

We will see what is going on guys hopefully everything is going to be fine.

Thank you for your answers
