It looks like the U.K. Government have decided to bring the M.O.T. roadworthiness testing exemption in line with the 40-year rolling date for Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax). As we all know, vehicles manufactured before 1st January 1960 are currently M.O.T. exempt. But now it would appear this could well apply to any vehicle over 40 years old and it would be a rolling date. If it happens, (see page 11 of the top consultation paper) the likely introduction date could be 20th May, 2018.
