SORN'd car and insurance?

Question

Car's been laid up and SORN'd for last 18 months. Going to book it in for a MOT, what's the deal with insurance? I understand I don't need to un-sorn it and get road tax but guessing I need insurance? Is it easy enough to get? I'd only want to be insured for a few days as I might just scrap it if it's going to cost too much to put back on the road.

What is the chance of getting caught, and are you prepared to the take the risk ?

If you stick the plates from another taxed and insured car on top of the plates on the one you want testing then you would only get caught if you had a crash...

Just sayin'

You can get short term temporary insurance,  I did it once to test drive a car I ended up buying.  Obviously the insurance company bumfucks you because it can but I don't quite remember to what extent, maybe £20 for a couple of hours.

So I found these apps on your phone which give short term cover, one was currva or something which I used in the end. Insured it for 3 hours for about £9. After reading the small print turns I wasn't actually covered as the car needed an MOT, but still would have done if plod pulled me over I reckon.
