    Under the law, all vehicles have to either be SORN'd or taxed. Failure makes you liable to an £80 (£40 within two weeks) fine. I believe that it can take months to come through so no surprise there. You also have to pay the tax owed. If you had SORN'd it straight away, you would have avoided the fine and the back tax.

    Best thing is to go online and tax [or SORN] it now. Expect a fine through the post in due course and pay it promptly to minimise the cost. If, for some reason, you can't do it online, go to the Post office and do it there.

    Where is the car parked? Has it got a valid MOT certificate? Is it a "runner"?
