YOU NOW HAVE ONE MONTH TO SAVE THE MoT!

The DfT has re­opened con­sul­ta­tion into clas­sics’ ex­ten­sion from road­wor­thi­ness test­ing – but the clos­ing date is 2 Novem­ber

New pro­pos­als for the ex­emp­tion of 40 years and older clas­sics from road­wor­thi­ness test­ing are once again be­ing mooted by the Gov­ern­ment. CCW is call­ing on read­ers to make sure this doesn’t hap­pen. The po­ten­tial new pol­icy has been opened to a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion, but there’s a tight dead­line for any­one who wants to have their say.

The DfT is call­ing for cars man­u­fac­tured be­fore 1977 to be MoT free – and it sug­gests 30-year -old cars could skip test­ing in the fu­ture. This would lead to a fur­ther 331,000 ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered be­tween 1960 and 1977 be­ing ex­empted from manda­tory an­nual test­ing. The Gov­ern­ment cites the rea­son for the con­sul­ta­tion as ‘due to EU Di­rec­tive changes’.
