Re: T 100 490cc 1968 tax MOT ?
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:00:30 AM »
I hope a member can advise me I have a T 100 first registered 21-5-1969 frame No. H65380  engine No.H39492
 am I correct in thinking that after 20-5-2018 I no longer need to tax or MOT my bike ? I have just received a letter from DVLA to say my bike must be taxed and MOTd ? or placed on SORN.

  We have just moved from Spain to Wales after 20 years so I am very out of touch with UK legal requirements
   all input gratefully received.

Is it insured? If not, then it must be SORNed.

You need to either tax or SORN it unless the taxation class has been changed to 'Historic'.
Even if Historic, you still have to 'tax' it, however, Historic tax is free.

You are correct about the change in MoT rules from the 20th of this month.
