Funnily enough, when we forgot to renew a sorn document because some stuff was lost during a move 3 months before-even though we updated vehicle documents-DVLA didn't send a sorn reminder even though when SORN was first set up it was promised. They decided to send a fine as first contact and bleated on about how it wasn't their legal responsibility to send reminders.

Wait til they start issuing 6 points automatically along with the fine and tell you that they don't have any legal duty to remind you...

I agree entirely but it does sound a bit like another stealth tax on innocent victims if it was a serious attempt to rid the roads of uninsured drivers then it would be acceptable. The report was in the Torygraph
