MoT exemption letter in Minor Matters?

Postby Oldmogman » Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:57 pm

I thought I saw a story in Minor Matters suggesting it's wise for driver's of MoT-exempt cars to carry an official letter explaining this, in the event of being stopped, and providing a link to the website to download it.

However, I've scoured the last two copies of Minor Matters but can't seem to find it. Or was I dreaming?!

Does anyone recall it, or could provide a link?

Not sure about Minor Matters, but the letter from the Department for Transport can be found on the FBHVC website https://www.fbhvc.co.uk/uploads/files/D ... ration.pdf

There was a lack of clarity at the beginning of the exemption, but all concerned should be well aware of it by now and there should be no need to carry documents to prove the letter of the law.

I am going to tax an MOT exempt car tomorrow and I will advise on whether I am asked for the V112. I know I can do it online but I have to go to the Post Office anyway, as I have now cleared up the issue of first time free tax for newly exempt cars and I said I would let the person know in the Post Office (They don't get many through). Before you can get free tax, the log book has to be changed to Historic from PLG. That's why I couldn't tax my mothers 1978 car free online. It's four years since I did it with another car and I couldn't recall the process!!

I taxed the car at the Post Office. The reminder stated I needed a V112 if taxing in the Post Office but the lady in the Post Office said that the system hadn't prompted her to ask for it.
