En­cour­age mo­bile her­itage and en­sure it is not en­cum­bered with rules or reg­u­la­tions which limit or un­rea­son­ably re­strict the own­er­ship and use of mo­bile her­itage as­sets in­clud­ing his­toric ve­hi­cles.

Not di­vide the ex­ist­ing cadre of road­go­ing mo­tor ve­hi­cles in the his­toric class by the in­tro­duc­tion of new tech­ni­cal def­i­ni­tions and lim­i­ta­tions for which own­ers over the years could not rea­son­ably have been ex­pected to plan or al­low without very good cause.

Con­tinue to roll the ex­ist­ing his­toric tax­a­tion class for­ward year by year and en­sure that own­ers of his­toric ve­hi­cles are not un­rea­son­ably pre­vented by ob­scure reg­u­la­tions from ben­e­fit­ting from the ex­ist­ing tax­a­tion pro­vi­sions re­gard­ing ve­hi­cles in the his­toric class.

Con­tinue with the ex­ist­ing pol­icy of treat­ing his­toric ve­hi­cles for the pur­poses of Clean Air and other sim­i­lar zones as his­toric arte­facts which their own­ers ought not to be en­cour­aged to de­stroy, en­abling their con­tin­ued use, which will in any event be very lim­ited, within such zones.

En­sure that the Driver and Ve­hi­cle Li­cens­ing Agency, in the ap­pli­ca­tion of its pro­cesses and pro­ce­dures acts as an en­abler of the ac­cess into the reg­is­ter of ad­di­tional ve­hi­cles, whether im­ported, found or re­stored, rather than a gate­keeper to pre­vent their ac­ces­sion.

Con­tinue to en­sure suit­able fu­els, with low lev­els of ethanol, re­main avail­able at the pumps.

En­sure that the use and en­joy­ment of all his­toric ve­hi­cles, whether or not cur­rently re­quired to be reg­is­tered, be not lim­ited or pre­vented by the im­po­si­tion upon them of un­rea­son­able and puni­tive re­quire­ments re­gard­ing mo­tor in­surance.
