The UK Legislation regarding the MoT Test requirements for pre-1960 vehicles came into force on 18 November 2012. The introduction of this legislation basically means that owners of pre-1960 three wheelers do not have to have their cars MoT tested although a voluntary test is still available for those members who require that little bit of extra assurance.

The allocation of age-related registration numbers to pre-1960 cars is still an area that requires clarification and the details will be added to he website as soon as possible.
