Is a Heritage certificate essential for claiming VED and MOT exemption ? My 1979 has been off the road for a few years and I was planning on insuring it soon ready for a return to the road and applying for tax and MOT exemption.

Only if the car is manufactured in an earlier year to which it was registered like mine is to claim Historic status.To be MOT exempt the vehicle must be in the Historic taxation class and thus MOT exemption can be self declared unless the vehicle has been "substantially modified."
Not necessary in your case as you can apply for Historic status from 1/4/20. You have to apply for it, it's not automatically done by DVLA. It's done at a Post Office that issues motor vehicle licences. It's a matter of filling in the taxation class change in the V5C and handing it in.
