You should specifically ask them how that applies to vehicles which no longer require an MOT.


I would expect the ruling to apply only to vehicles that legally NEED a valid certificate.

MOT exempt, and, less than 3 years old, don't come into that category.


Question

So, bit difficult for me to comply with the rule as neither of mine are >=3 years old.

I wouldn't rely on what you may (quite reasonably) expect but would ask them.

Will be a bit unfortunate if they use the 8th January as the cutoff date as mine was registered on the 9th...   Cry

My convert was registered on the 8th January 1980, so only a couple of years to go

My V50 is a 1980. I'd be looking forward to it a whole lot more if I didn't have a big birthday coming that year (if I'm spared, and if Labour don't get back in power by then).

Well My elderly morris is now MOT exempt
but in the general scheme of things 40 quid is not a lot compared to the cost of the refurbishment, but I suppose once its finished it mileage will be so small each year it would not change very much
although I plan to have a full examination and inspection carried out
its a pity they dont drop the road tax on my Breva though
80 odd quid a year is a lot for the few miles I do
if it was on the petrol I would profit from that and on the car as well

You could simply keep the bike on Sorn and just tax it when the mood takes you.

Then at the end of the month if you aren't likely to be using the bike for a while put it back on Sorn again.

oddly I have done that this time, I pay my VED monthly, so I stopped it at the end of November
will probably re start in in march
but its still silly money for such a small motorcycle

You know it costs you more to pay monthly?

I usually tax my bike* for a year when the first decent weather arrives (generally in March) then cash it in when the weather gets too unpleasant - usually October although sometimes November. Much cheaper and more flexible.

*Not the Norton or Ariel of course which are free so stay taxed all year round......

Yeah – me too. I’ll tax various during March to June, then start SORNing again October/November time. Whilst interest rates were riding so low I taxed for the full twelve months rather than six as I figured it would work out cheaper. Not quite sure where the threshold would be for that.

And yes, an increasing number I don't have to pay on which stay street legal the year round.
