      MoT Exemption....April 2019
      Whilst Not an event please read following
      For  11 months now historic vehicles (over 40 years) have
         not required an MoT test certificate, subject to conditions.
         Some police forces have not caught up and have been
         prosecuting motorists for no MoT  test certificate.
         The FBHVC has issued a letter which all members should carry 
         with them to prevent any mis-understanding .
         I have copied this letter if anyone wants a copy please contact me
         This does NOT exempt anyone from having an unroadworthy
         vehicle , and it is still subject to Construction and Use Regs
         i.e. tyres, lights, structure, etc, etc  so keep it legal out there
