Do I need to SORN my current lease car if I move my insurance over to a new lease car?

My car is a lease car. I will probably sort another one out before the term is up and put my present car in the garage until they take it away. The insurance will have been changed over to the new car. Will the old car need to be SORN'd as it will have no insurance to cover it? I do not hold the V5, the car is registered to the leasing company.

Yes, it will need to be SORN'D as all vehicles have to now have continual insurance cover on them unless they have been SORN'd. It is an offence if you do not.
