First MOT after MSVA ?

Post by peakrock » Wed Dec 15, 2021 11:47 am

It's been a year since I first registered my Triking after the MSVA and the DVLA inform me that it requires an MOT before it can be retaxed. I was under the impression that it's not required until 3 years after first registration. Does anyone know for sure whether the 3 year exemption should apply or is everyone's experience that an MOT was necessary after the first year?

Thanks

Dave

Dave, Squeaker was registered with an age related number and had to have an MOT the first year. The T3 was registered as a new car and given a new number, this required an MOT three years after the registration process.
What does your V5 say in terms of when registered?
I hope this helps.

Hi Richard, mine shows as registered on 01/01/2021 though I submitted enough proof of content from the donor to get an age related registration number. I did in fact purchase a personalised number plate which they issued at the time of registration but I don't think that alters anything...

I guess it might be worth an email to the DVLA as it's a bit cold and unpredictable at this time of year to book an MOT and drive there on the day!

Thanks Dave

Hi Dave
I was allocated an age related number plate( 1981) to engine, gearbox, bevel box etc. But registration on v5 is 2014. I needed an mot after 12 months.
