Just found this on Matters of Testing, appears bloody EU say it is against their directive to allow "Classic" vehicles pre 1960 to go without MOT, and will have to be on vehicles over 30 years old (so pre 1984) and not having major modification.
Now I test average of 8 to 10 year old cars with 43% fail rate, looked at my 15 to 20 year old vehicle averages and was 72% fail rate, can you imagine what "SHEDS" will be out there if this becomes law. 30 years or older NO MOT NEEDED
get your comments to dvsa, tell them your horror stories re mot fails
