2022 SORN / UK reg updates?

Hi all. This appears to be the only place where the question was answered in any detail.

What's the advice for 2022, post Brexit and everything, for long term (3+ years) overlanding with a UK registered / MOTd vehicle?

Any developments? or still "grey"?

As far as I am aware Brexit has changed little or nothing as far as this is concerned, vehicles should be legal in country of origin when used abroad which is impossible to do with an older UK vehicle due to the MOT requirement, unless you go totally retro with something more than 40 years old of course.
As has been said people still do longer trips with them with expired tax and MOT so the advice and opinion given before still stands.

Does anyone know what vehicle checks, if any, are made by CARS when issuing a Carnet de Passage? If a UK registered vehicle has been out of the country for more than 12 months on a SORN at home without insurance or tax, will this affect the issuing of a CdP?

I contacted CARS yesterday to ask for a quote and explained I'd be riding until 2026 and would only need the CDP at that point.
I was emailed the quote with the following conditions at the bottom saying:

"The vehicle must have been registered to you for at least 1 month and registered to your current address.


FYI: It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle complies to UK regulations before travelling overseas https://www.gov.uk/taking-vehicles-out-of-uk
"

I am not sure what CARS would do, if anything, at the start or at the end of the CDP process if the the bike does not comply to UK regulations at that point, which as we know from this thread it cannot comply if one is overlanding for over 12 months. I ought to ask but please let us know if you find out too.
