The even­tual de­ci­sion on whether to ex­empt clas­sics from an­nual tests – as is al­ready the case with pre-1960 cars – will im­pact our hobby for years to come. That’s why it’s so im­por­tant that the Gov­ern­ment comes to a de­ci­sion that truly re­flects the views of clas­sic own­ers and ex­perts, and not one foisted upon it by an EU that Bri­tain (re­gard­less of how you voted last sum­mer) is now leav­ing. My view is that all clas­sics – my MGB in­cluded – should be given some sort of in­de­pen­dent safety check, but that doesn’t have to be the MoT in its cur­rent form. Don’t for­get that one of the op­tions on the DfT’s con­sul­ta­tion was leav­ing things ex­actly as they are. Let’s keep our fin­gers crossed that White­hall’s been in lis­ten­ing mode over the last few months.
