You may run into a unique set of problems. Your car sitting on the driveway may become inconvenient if other drivers in the household need the space, or your engine may start to give you trouble as it’s not being used. If you’re leaving at home, it may be wise to ask a family member to check on it and fire up the engine occasionally, so it’s ready to go for you when you go home.
If you’re planning on keeping your car off the road for most of the year you could consider declaring Statutory Off-Road Notification (SORN) as this can help you avoid unnecessarily paying road tax if the car is not in use at all.
Some students opt to sell their car before uni to help them boost their bank balance and save the hassle of keeping the car running.
