Question: Is my vehicle exempt from an MOT?

Answer: MOT Exemption pre 1960 vehicles

From 30 September 2013, motor cars, motorcycles and light goods vehicles manufactured or registered before 1960 will be exempt from the mandatory MOT test.

DVA and the DVLA will continue to offer tests on a voluntary basis, but only at the request of the vehicle owner. It is anticipated that the bulk of voluntary tests will be from vehicles intended for Cherished Transfers as the registration transfer scheme still requires a test certificate.

The vehicle inspection process has not changed, and any pre 1960 vehicle booked for testing will continue to be inspected in the normal way, MOT reminders for these vehicles will no longer be sent out automatically.
