Mike replied to Liam Bourne's discussion Has anyone registered as MOT exempt?
"Thanks for the replies, there is no text in section 3 of the V5C for my Dutton, not a "Q" reg either. I must admit that I share Adrian's mistrust of the DVLA, civil servants and government generally."

"Hi all, a bit late to this thread! My understanding is that kitcars cannot be MOT exempt, even if 40+ years old, happy to be proven wrong."

"TWD did a few as complete cars but if the kit was registered as built from new parts then it got a new reg, becoming a vehicle in it's own right, very much like passing the IVA does today, with all new parts you'd get a 67…"

"If the vehicle is on a Q then the simple answer will always be no. Forever will it require MOT and VED. If it's an age related plate with a date of first registration indicated as pre 1977 then it will probably need to be assessed by 'the…"

"Even if the IVA is age appropriate then that puts the responsibility on you to prove the age of said vehicle. You know they won't settle for 'late 70's'. It's going to be very difficult to grade the tests for Hot Rods and kt…"

"No idea to be honest as I was into rally cars and hot rods before I bought my first Leggy in 2000. I'll ask around but I think it was just so much more relaxed back then. A lot of older Duttons even retained the donor VIN despite having a new…"

Hi Mike, interesting postcode - google reckons that's Buckingham Palace! We shall have to treat you like royalty. Is one's Malaga roadworthy or is it a 'project'?
