Hi everyone,

We have received official notices from DoT via the FBVHC including press releases.
The attached documents are Intended to clarify the situation regarding MoT exemption for historic vehicles.

I hope this helps.

Cheers
Paul

Chaps and chappesses,

You should be VERY careful before you tick the box to exempt yourself from MoT, irrespective of whether you have a modified or standard car. You are self certifying that your car is fully compliant for the road. If for example you have old tyres and you slide into someone on a wet road or are involved in any accident where your pride and joy may be assessed, I think you’ll find it next to impossible to claim if it’s found there was an issue with your car.

It’s also a cheap way of finding out if there are any issues that need attention - wouldn’t you want to know???

IMHO this isn’t going to last forever as someone is going to kill someone else due to driving around in a piece of crap car that shouldn’t be on the road.

Don’t you think your pride and joy warrants £40 or so to be on the safe side?

It’s up to you, but I’m going to continue getting LRB and any of my other cars mot’d each and every year.

Just sayin’ 

Ciao

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

I always enjoy a bit of motor law interpretation.  Do we have a web location for the stated attachments “Statutory Instrument and a copy of the Explanatory Memorandum”.   With this documentation my Summer evenings will simply fly by!

For my money the MoT test has always been a minimum standard, where just the basic safety items are checked to a rudimentary level. 

We have a saying at work “An MoT pass is one year away from the car going to the scrap heap”.

I would like to think mine, and all your Montes, somewhat exceed this minimum standard.
