Last year, the UK Government (Department of Transportation) launched a public consultation to investigate future options regarding MoT testing on classic vehicles.
Under the current rules, any classic vehicle built before January 1st, 1960 is exempt from the annual MoT test.
The options include:
The government is also proposing that vehicles which have been ‘substantially altered’ will not be exempt from the annual MoT test.
Results of the 2016 consultation will be published later this year on the UK government website at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/roadworthiness-testing-for-vehicles-of-historic-interest
