it should be insured if it is on the road.

For example, what if the handbrake were to accidently come off or fail and it ploughed into a group of kids who were walking past and kiled themall, and then their parents all wanted to sue you?

Thats not the question, i want to know if its legal, it's getting in the way and causing arguments, the road is flat outside.
"it should be insured if its on the road" = It is NOT legal to park and uninsured car on the road

might be a good idea to SORN it but you must have it completely off the road. can do this through DVLA or take your reminder/log/restration book to a post office

Sorn deals with tax, not insurance.
A vehicle that is parked on the public highway must have insurance by law.
If you have a 'for sale' sign in the van whilst it is on the highway, you could get prosecuted for that, too, depending where you live.
Any motor vehicle on a public road must have a valid and current insurance document in force.
