One week to save MoT

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -­mot­mad­ness

You have one week to save the MoT.

CCW is re­mind­ing you to make your voice heard and to help end the MoT mad­ness sur­round­ing clas­sics by con­tribut­ing to an on­line con­sul­ta­tion, which closes on 2 Novem­ber.

The Depart­ment for Trans­port is moot­ing a con­sul­ta­tion on road­wor­thi­ness test­ing for ve­hi­cles of his­toric in­ter­est – with the aim that ve­hi­cles made more than 40 years ago will not need an an­nual in­spec­tion.

The pro­posal has been con­demned by many in the in­dus­try as dan­ger­ous, but it also has strong sup­port in the his­toric ve­hi­cle fra­ter­nity.

Editor David Simis­ter says: ‘ CCW firmly be­lieves all cars should be given in­de­pen­dent safety checks, and op­pose the DfT’s pro­pos­als to take even more clas­sics out of the MoT sys­tem.

‘Whether you agree with the Government’s pro­pos­als to drop MoTs for his­toric ve­hi­cles or not it’s hugely im­por­tant for clas­sic own­ers to have their say on some­thing that will af­fect our hobby for years to come.’
