Warning: Some Police Not Understanding MOT Exemption

Post by Andrew Vigor » Sat Jan 26, 2019 10:03 am

The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) has issued advice after it emerged that some police are stopping some owners of classic cars more than 40 years old for appearing not to have a valid MOT, which it fears is due to official records on these vehicles not making the exemption clear. The FBHVC advice is encouraging owners of classics to carry with them a copy of a recent letter from the Department for Transport (DfT) in case they are stopped by police officers unaware of the VED exemption changes for classics more than 40 years old. Here is a link to the article on the V8 Register Website http://www.v8register.net/sub3/news1901 ... mption.htm The DfT letter which you may wish to carry in your car is attached.
