Ger­man-style his­toric class that could be com­ing to the UK

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

In Ger­many and Aus­tria, clas­sic cars can get an H plate – to sig­nify it be­ing a his­toric car. Reg­is­ter­ing as an his­toric car gains cheaper tax and in­sur­ance; but cars have to ad­here to the fol­low­ing stricter rules:

They must have been reg­is­tered at least 30 years ago.

They must be ‘mostly’ in their orig­i­nal con­di­tion. No mu­rals or cus­tom paint jobs. No ‘mod­ern’ mod­i­fi­ca­tions are per­mit­ted on the ve­hi­cles.

Mod­i­fi­ca­tions that are al­lowed in­clude changes that ben­e­fit safety or emis­sions.

Mod­i­fi­ca­tions that are ‘in pe­riod’ can be al­lowed.
