Mods are OUT

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Mot Changes -

A ve­hi­cle that has been sub­stan­tially changed within the pre­vi­ous 30 years will have to be sub­mit­ted for an­nual MOT test­ing – this 30-year rule will roll on, just like the 40-year rule for MOT ex­emp­tion. How­ever, there are a num­ber of ex­cep­tions, which con­cern en­gines, the use of al­ter­na­tive parts where stock parts are not avail­able, and up­grades to the brakes and sus­pen­sion in the in­ter­est of safety or the en­vi­ron­ment. See the ap­pro­pri­ate sec­tions for each area of ex­emp­tion. Re­mem­ber that this only con­cerns sub­stan­tial changes. Fit­ting non-stan­dard door mir­rors, for in­stance, does not af­fect MOT ex­emp­tion.
