The outcome from the ‘Roadworthiness testing for vehicles of historic interest’ consultation was released on 14 September 2017.
We have decided that most vehicles over 40 years old (on a rolling basis) will be exempt from MOT testing from 20 May 2018.
Those that have been ‘substantially changed’ will still require yearly testing.
We have now published final guidance as to what constitutes ‘substantial change’ in the context of old vehicles.
If you have any questions or feedback about it please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The consultation received 2,217 responses, including from:
- car clubs
- trade bodies
- public bodies
An addendum to the consultation response was added 15 December 2017.
