UK MOT Exemption

Post by Giscard » Wed May 23, 2018 2:29 pm

As of 20 May 2018, UK vehicles that are essentially unmodified and are over 40 years old are now exempt from MOT testing. This is pleasing for me as my Velocette MOT expired on the 22 May 2018 :D . My 1949 Sunbeam was already exempt being pre-1960 and now my 1974 Triumph Trident is also MOT exempt as well as now having free road tax, like the other two :D

When I sell my Caterham 7 the next car I buy will be pre 1960, so will not need a CT in France. But first I need to get the Cat through the new , super tough , version of the french CT. So, I need to find tester who is deaf (or he will be after testing it), blind (so he cant see the high polution readings), and is sympathetic to the exentricities of old cars.

I would approach the exempt from MOT with caution and check the regulations on the DVLA website CAREFULLY, as they are not as simple as people seem to think.

I have been in touch with DVLA already and am happy that all my bikes fit in with the exemption criteria.
