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