    Love the monthly payments via direct debit. No more finding £230. In one hit. Now £20 per month love it. OK so you pay a little more ,but 25p per week extra, ? I can live with that..

    Just tried to Sorn mine as the renewal document came through, but it won't let me because it is already on Sorn? Is that normal?

    When I sorned ours we had an email confirming the sorn and some words that I interpreted as that unlike previously we would not need to renew the sorn and the sorn would stay in place until it was taxed again.

    So as I understand it (and I may easily be mistaken) once a vehicle is sorned it stays that way until you say otherwise. :)

    I have just done same.. Due at the end of December.
    Already been online and clicked the pay monthly box... £172 over 12 payments compared. to £165 in one hit.. All helps with the budgeting, especially when the insurance and hab check are due at same time...

    If you elect to pay monthly do you get back the monthly payments when sorned or do you carry on paying the monthly payments

    Also, I think that the direct debit just continues until you say 'stop' which saves having to remember to renew it :)

    I always thought a DD could only be stopped by the receiving person

    Im probably wrong though :unsure:

    I think its a bit poor you have to pay extra to pay monthly, i would have thought because they are getting regular payments it would be cheaper. maybe i was just hoping :D

    You should be able to cancel a Direct Debit with your bank although you should also tell the payee.

    I suppose DVLA think they are doing you a favour by 'lending' you the money in order to be able to pay monthly :)

    I for one dont mind the DVLA doing me a favour costing me less than 4p per day if i dont have to find £230 in one hit.

    Once you declare sorn the Direct Debit is cancelled automatically.....there will be no refund as no payments have been made after the sorn date.

    I got fined because one of my motorbikes was not sorned on renewal of sorn time?????
    It was on sorn but I got the form after a year off the road in bits for rebuilding, and thought ,It is already on Sorn so did nothing. I got fined a £100 although the tax was about £10.
    They would accept NO EXCUSE pay the fine, It is a tax on not paying tax.
    Check VERY carefully the day after the Sorn Date is due and then redo it.

    Thank you. That's what I thought might happen.. even though I have tried to 'renew' the sorn and they wouldn't let me on the computer. I will go into the post office and see what they say.
