The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) has reported that a driver of a historic vehicle has received a 'Notice of Prosecution' from an ill-briefed Policeman and there have been a few bureaucratic misunderstandings of the situation on the roads recently. The Federation has urgently sought clarification of the position from the Department of Transport who responded with the statement in the link below. The FBHVC has suggested the declaration could be printed out and carried in your vehicle to avoid any future confusion:-

Thats really interesting, in particular the requirement that the vehicle is of a type no longer in production.

 

Does that mean that a 40 year old Morgan can't be MOT exempt because they are still making them?

Substantially modified ?

 

Spotlights and Wheel-arches are very dodgy.

 

To be on the safe side, modifications should be restricted to a Windscreen Washer and a Coat hanger for an aerial.

I seem to recall, that elsewhere there is a list of what is and isn't deemed to be 'substantially modified', with examples.

 

We have very similar schemes here in Australia through our various states, with some variation between them, however, we are required to be financial members or authorised clubs and largely, it's administered by the clubs.
