Petition Introduce a Rolling road tax exemption for vehicle

Postby matt brighton » 14 Apr 2019, 10:46

I doubt this will get many signatures but thought some here might like to know about it ....and consider signing....

Petition - https://petition.parliament.uk/signatur ... rYIdhOLW2g
"Introduce a Rolling road tax exemption for vehicles over 30 years old.

The classic car market is booming, it would make it even more desirable, if classic cars became tax exempt after 30 years.
Fair's fair, they have already contributed a huge amount to the tax purse.

More details
Classic and very collectable cars, are usually incredibly well looked after and cherished.
It is very important to keep our motoring heritage alive.
The introduction of this tax exemption would be of a huge benefit."

Arguably -some would say that if you can afford to buy and keep a classic motor nowadays, you can afford the tax -

I was under the impression it was already rolling, both on Mot and tax exemption, is this simply to try to get it earlier ?

It was never 30 yrs.

It came out in 1997 that anything 25yrs or older was tax exempt, this lasted for 1 year only, it stayed at anything pre '72.

Pre '60 vehicles also became MOT exempt some years ago and then about 2012 the '40 yr rule' came in where anything over 40yrs was both tax and MOT exempt.

338 signed still a bit to go.
it looks like i will have to wait 5 years until my van is 40 years old. some of the early vans will be coming into that era soon as the first t25 were registered 1979.
what a thought no tax and no mot to worry about.

No MOT to worry about?
You'll still need an annual inspection for your insurers to be happy that you are not driving an unroadworthy or unsafe vehicle...

Yes but its a 40 year rolling - this would reduce it to 30...

That said - I'm not holding my breath
