EU Directive 2014/45 enabled Member States to exempt vehicles over 30 years old from periodic roadworthiness testing. Following implementation of this Directive, changes to the MOT exemption criteria for vehicles of historic interest came into force on 20 May 2018, in Great Britain. These changes were made following public consultation and publication of an impact assessment. No further formal review of the effectiveness of these changes has been conducted.
