In an unexpected move, the Department of Transport has announced that you'll no longer have to get an MoT test for pre-1960 cars and bikes.
Owners of exempted vehicles, which account for around 160,000 currently on the road, will still be legally required to ensure that they're roadworthy, in proper condition and safe, but are no longer obliged to take the annual inspection.
Transport Minister, Mike Penning, says: "Owners of classic cars and motorbikes tend to be enthusiasts who maintain their vehicles well. They don't need to be told to look after them, they're out there in all weathers checking the condition of the engine, tyres and bodywork. We are committed to cutting out red tape which costs motorists money without providing significant overall benefits."
According to a survey conducted by the Federation of British Historic Vehicles, classic car enthusiasts aren't unanimous about the news: of the 4000 respondents, 53 per cent said they'd still still take their cars for a test voluntarily.
The decision follows months of campaigning by the All Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group, led by East Yorkshire MP and Morgan owner, Greg Knight.
