What a stupid idea!

The cars that are most likely to be unroadworthy are the ones they are choosing not to test!

I haven't liked MOT exemptions since they were introduced, I still think it's part of a master plan to get us & our cars off the road!

Always worth having someone else cast their eye over a car once a year.

Fantastic:
'The Department for Transport has actively considered the needs of blind and partially
sighted people in accessing this document'

Why on earth should they need to read such a document cos hopefuly they arent allowed to drive..?

We are living in an equal opportunities society :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have heard it said that occasionally Stevie Wonder used to like to drive his own tour bus. Only on very straight roads in the middle of American & presumably with a spotter close by :)

I'm with you on this one Mark, I think that its a ridiculous idea.
When I get the time I will read the document in more detail but it looks like they have just ignored the objections again.
Bound to be a hidden agenda, there always is.

I'd be interested to learn how the insurers propose to deal with it. How do they deal with pre 1960 cars currently?
Didn't the Mini lose out in the late 1960's to much faster cars, not mentioning a certain Team Manager who oversaw some fantastic victories in another team from at least 1968 to 1976 (at least). Mind you some of those cars are nothing like those in period so might need MOT's due to "changes"!
Hey ho. I will still get my cars "assessed" every year for my safety and peace of mind. I do enjoy my annual trips to see the car up on a ramp and inspect the underside.
