Modifying Your Mini Without Falling Foul Of The Law
Posted 12 January 2010 - 04:23 PM
A vehicle must indicate an accurate speed to the driver at all times and must be capable of traveling in a rearward direction under its own power.
however, there is no reference to it in the required standards column. so do i have to fit one as i cant see any real reason for one as it will only ever be used on the weekends and not for trips to the shops.

7. The vehicle must have an operational reverse gear which can be
selected from the driving position. (see note 4)
Method of Inspection
Note 4: “Reverse Gear” A device used to propel the vehicle in a
backwards direction under its own power, this does not have to be in the
gearbox, it may be a separate component i.e. secondary gearbox /
So whether you want on or not you need one to pass an IVA.

"New EU regulations that will take effect in 2012 will prohibit the modification of new cars"

I agree the nanny state's choking tendrils reach ever further, but we are actually quite lucky that the UK gov't does at least try to accommodate us amateur car botchers. IVA is nothing compared to the regulations and testing of production cars - even if it doesn't prevent dodgy brakes 'n sticking accelerator pedals.
I suppose that would be our defence: my dodgy spannering in my own garage on my own car presents the same scale of risk as my dodgy driving, the same one car to crash with. Toyota's risk was scaled up by a factor of millions from one undetected error.
Oh, this wasn't intended as a discussion thread, you should really have started a new topic in a chat section

the only way you can keep your mini tax exempt is to repair your shell or use a new unregistered shell
