    Quote "Keepers of VHIs exempt from periodic testing continue to be responsible for their vehicle’s roadworthiness. Keepers of vehicles over 40 years old can voluntarily submit vehicles for testing.

    Keepers of VHIs claiming an exemption from the MoT test should make a declaration when renewing their vehicle tax. The responsibility to ensure the declared vehicle is a VHI and meets the criteria, rests with the vehicle keeper as part of their due diligence. If a vehicle keeper is not sure of the status of a vehicle, they can consult a marque or historic vehicles expert, a list of whom will be available on the website of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs.

    If a vehicle keeper cannot determine that the vehicle has not been substantially changed, they should not claim an exemption from the MoT test."

    I think that covers it - on the tax renewal.

    So does that mean you can’t renew on line as there is no facility to add a note on on line application?

    Yes that is the date it changes not before. So if your mot is due before that date you either get it mot'd or wait until after May 18th.

    And it raises the question - Just because you can skip the MOT, why would you? And will you clear it with your insurance because they will, no doubt just love to void the policy if they find no proof of roadworthiness, in the event of a claim?
    I haven't heard a squeak from the insurance industry regarding this - obviously keeping quiet!

    I wouldn't want to skip the mot. It's always nice to have someone else's perspective on the car.

    Well we already have no mot for pre 60 cars and not to mention the thousands of historic lorries and buses that didn't need one long before the pre 60 thing either. There has been no MoT stipulation from insurance for those vehicles plus they cant overule the law of the land either. They get out of it by saying in the small print the vehicle must be kept roadworthy.
