Cesare, my abject apologies for not spotting the great Apple presumptive spelling in my previous post.

I have checked and this time your name is correctly spelt !!

MOT is only valid on day of issue.....onus is always on owner to keep his car road worthy.

Effectively they will rely on the 95% to do the responsible thing whilst maybe 5% may not.

Hoping its not a devious Trojan horse to shaft the sensible 95%! What are the EU examples of restriction of use of classic/vintage vehicles and usage?

I have discussed with my MOT man and will continue to have my cars checked yearly. My main concern is that if ,God forbid, I have to make an insurance claim that my insures will use the lack of a yearly test against me.

Even even less I'd say! I had a suspension strut top mount fail on me just a few hours after the car passed the MOT test. See http://gammaconsortium.com/lanciagammaforum/index.php?topic=5.msg10134#msg10134

This reminds me of a tale Jim told me.

He had done some welding for a friend of a friend who, when it had been completed, had the impertinence to ask if it was guaranteed.  "Of course it is" said Jim, "fully guaranteed ....... until you drive out the gate"!!!!

It's so reassuring to know he has confidence in his work!!

So you need to drive up and down his 3 mile driveway a few dozen times before leaving his premises!!!

Having said that....am sure anyone doing this type of work would allow a degree of come back if something failed too soon or was badly done....but then good ones don't get to that point

I guess that the exemption date of April 2014 instead of 2013 establishes an age of 40 years? There's also an issue with anyone who has already got a tax disc on their car that they paid for that extends beyond April 2013, I suspect that the government would be reluctant to have to deal with all the refunds that they'd be asked for only to have to re-issue (free) tax discs the next day.

Whatever the reasons I welcome it and look forward to 2018 when the Stratos replica reaches 40 years old. Luckily for me the age wasn't altered from the donor car when it was checked by the DVLA so it's properly registered, just appears 10 years older than it is!

And I totally agree with concerns over the removal of the annual MOT test. Despite building the car myself and knowing it better than the MOT inspector I welcome the annual test as things do wear out slowly and you don't always notice a worn bearing/joint gradually getting worse. A second pair of eyes each year is essential.

Has anyone approached their insurance company for a view? How do you prove your vehicle has been properly maintained in the event of a claim if there's no service history or MOT test?

How often is mechanical failure the blame for an accident?

Driver error is what...90 plus percent the reason for all accidents. And as older cars represent 0.001 of overall car market/miles covered/driven at off peak periods/daylight/holiday drives, no pressure,  ( figure picked from mid-air!)...then the likelihood of increased accidents almost non-existant....plus when an accident does occur, less serious as driven more slowly, and more carefully
