My car has been SORN'd for several years - how do I get it registered and back on the road?

My 1970 Jaguar 420G has been on a SORN for a number of years. The restoration is nearly complete. How do I get it registered and back on the road?

Your Statutory Off-Road Notification will be cancelled when you tax your car online. To do this, you'll need to get it MoT'd (you're allowed to drive to a pre-booked MoT appointment if your car is on SORN) and it will also need to be insured.

Enormous, with room from three on the front bench seat alone. Still looks and feels like a Jaguar, despite how big it is.
