My tax is running out at the end of the month on Geraldine and with winter coming upon us I don't know whether to tax her again or sorn her and leave her until the spring although she is mot'd till August. What is everyone else doing over the winter?

Driving everyday throughout the winter, that's what they're for! Don't really have a choice as it's our only car, but 'Mish' copes well apart from snow and ice then I have to walk!

Taxed throughout the year. Never know when you might want to go for a drive. Plus as Daz said, good to take them out every now and then

Thanks for advice I was worried about the snow and ice affecting my van that's all! I've had it the bottom treated by Danbury and I've waxoyled it but it my first winter of owning my van.

Just be sensible about using it in poor weather - don't take any risks. It doesn't rain/snow everyday of the colder months!

We keep our Olive on the road and ready to zip out when the weather allows...we do get some lovely sunny winter days, and it's already been said that it's best to keep parts moving as and when possible!
