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’.
