New MOT rules for 40yrs+ vehicles

Has this been discussed on here yet ?

Detail of outcome

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 now be exempt from MOT testing.

Those that have been ‘substantially changed’ will still require yearly testing. We have prepared draft guidance as to what constitutes “substantial change” in the context of old vehicles. We plan to finalise the guidance during November 2017. If you have any questions or feedback about it please contact

The consultation received 2,217 responses, including from:

car clubs
trade bodies
public bodies
