MOT exemption for modified classics
News & Events / January 17th, 2018 8:02 am


Minor modifications will not affect the new MOT rules for classic cars, the Department for Transport has clarified.

According to the Government, vintage vehicles that have had minor changes made, will not be required to undergo the annual roadworthiness test, in line with changes announced this year that exempt cars over 40 years old.

Speaking to consumer site Honest John, a spokesman for the DfT said: “Most vehicles manufactured or first registered over 40 years ago will, as of 20 May, 2018, be exempt from period testing – unless they have been substantially changed.”

Classic car owners have been concerned that the term “modified” could refer to the replacement of original parts that has been an essential part of keeping the motor up and running.

However, the Government has quashed the fears, with the spokesman adding that only “substantially changed” vehicles will require re-registration as part of a separate process.
