Historic Car Tax


Recommended Posts

I've just had my car tax reminder come through - and it says I need to tax it - which is fine.

But it is 40years old - as of last August - but everything I can currently find is still talking about Jan 1st 1977 as the cut off date.

Has the change in MOT status pushed the date back for this year, to I guess March or May or whenever that comes in?

The £80 odd for the 6months doesn't bother me per-se but its the principle!

From the HMRC web site

Historic vehicles

Vehicles made before 1 January 1977 are exempt from 1 April 2017.

I always have wondered if you have to register your car as historic as well as I had to when I first got my car on the V5 from PLG  to historic

Yes you have to register - https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/603905/inf34-taxing-historic-vehicles.pdf

Wonder if they update it after the budget and a refund is given?

If I'd known, I would have bought 12months tax last time rather than 6 as I was expecting it to be exempt now.

Might have a chat with the post office tomorrow.:D
