Exhibit one.
Vehicle which has failed and below we can see why.

Exhibit two.
It's passed.

I bought this after the owner had trouble shutting the doors and as you can see it's legal to be insured and taxed just not road legal.
I might add the it's never had a welder to it in the two days between fail and passing.


So was the second test done by his mate and with £50 stuffed in the glovebox or something?

I recon the second one was done while the owner was bent over the bonnet with no knickers on.

I be leave another u turn as happened first it was major fail meens you can only remove on a truck /trailer, now it's the kit cars will have to have an up-to-date emissions engine.

But don't worry there's roughly a fortnight before the new well thought out laws-rules become enforceable.

Kits and imports aren't going to be emissions tested to modern standards now. 

Garages are also not allowed to detain/impound vehicles if a tested vehicle gets a major or a dangerous. 

Shit- sorry, you just said that.

So my MGBs MOT ran out last month. It is currently in the Historic tax class.

My plan on the 20th May 2018 is to:
  • First thing in the morning visit https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles to see if they've updated the guidance - which I expect them to on that day.
  • If its still unclear on what to do, I'll visit https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax and see if I can "re-tax" my vehicle. Even though its currently set as taxed, I seem to remember that I managed to do this before. I might plug my details in again tonight and see what options it gives.
  • Once sorted that its MOT exempt, I'll phone up the local garage to book it in for an MOT anyway...

This.

 

The worst they could do is grass you up to the rozzers but how many garages are going to be arsed doing that. Essentially the new fail states will just be used to scare people into thinking the car they've been driving with that fault for ages is suddenly 100% lethal so they shouldn't drive it again and have it fixed there asap for all the monies...

Not sure Sunday is going to be much to write home about tbh - one would have to tax the car using a V112 at a post office before one could legally drive it, and there aren't many post offices open on Sundays.  I certainly won't be roaring around in the Renault 6 this weekend.

Here is a little thought. So it seems like we'll need to fill in V112 and take it to a post office to become MOT exempt on cars already on Historic tax class. This is because the MOT exemption is a separate thing to the tax class. Partly because you need to declare its MOT exempt due to be both on age and not meeting the substantially modified clauses.

However what about those vehicles already MOT exempt (i.e. pre 1960)? As it will be now declared, will those now not be MOT exempt until the owner totters down to their local Post Office and fill a V112 in?

I just had a look at the V112 form and it hasn't been changed yet and still gives pre 1960 as a reason for exemption and not the 40 year rule. I will be testing the registering an import that is mot exempt in a week or so. I know I used to be able to register pre 60 cars without a test so will have to see if it works with the Renault 7

Yes, as I think I replied at the time. It does NOT need to be insured to tax it (delays in insurance companies updating the MID stopped the checks) but under continuous insurance rules, if it is taxed it MUST be insured or they will fine you.

I want to register the Lambretta as MOT exempt (to be ready, on the off-chance I decide to sell it), but don’t want to pay for insurance on something I won’t use for the foreseeable.
So basically, I could tax it online, then take a V112 to the PO next Monday and get it registered as MOT exempt?
I’d SORN it straight after, so I don’t get the bollocking you mention...

Edit: Just tried taxing it, and it states ‘The Welsh aren’t interested in your veehicle right now coz it’s not MOTd mate’...

I wonder if that’ll change as of next week?

I did read somewhere that the online declaration wouldn't be available until late June/July and all vehicles that were already MOT exempt would have to declare VHI anyway as they may not fit the new criteria. I think the V112 will be replaced by a new section on the tax application form if I have managed to read, and understand, the information correctly.

I was being a div, the V112 was updated on the 18th May. I just kept opening my cached copy when my phone was asking!?

This has been updated now: https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles

Still not 100% clear to me what I need to do next for my MGB. I thought I'd need to go to the post office and fill in the V112, however that site reads like I don't need to do anything yet. Only when I renew my tax exemption do I need to declare there is no substantial changes.

One other point I've just realised is that none of this applies to NI. They have no 40yr rolling MOT exemption.

Well, as at 8.30 Sunday morning, they' ve amended half the system.

IAs I said, I tried to tax a car that hasn't moved in 15 years online, as an exercise.
Yesterday I was refused - no Mot.

Today I was asked to confirm its exempt, which I did, so it then moved onto the Direct Debit - wanting to charge me £13.56 per month.

I consider setting it up, then cancelling the DD before collection - but that just feels a massive pain, so I cancelled.

I'll go into the PO later, but the system has def changed. They just don't seem to have linked sll the dots...

Getting there.
