Will over 70s in isolation get a reduction on the price of their VED?

Cheeky question. Is it likely that those over 70, who've had to permanently park their cars for three months (or more) due to Coronavirus, will get a reduction on their car tax?

Sadly not. However, if the car is off the public road, you can declare it as SORN and get a refund on the VED. You can then tax it again at a later date or drive it to a pre-booked MoT with valid insurance.
