    Pre '98 may have Grandfather rights if certain criteria are met and the problem faced in a particular way.
    First reged in 1996 ( on a 1936 plate ). mot every year since.!

    There's question syou must always ask yourself ( well if you are concerned about it ). I'M NOT ASKING for answers but the answers will set you free .

    The first and staring point is really quite simple .

    Does the logbook in any way shape or form have any relevance to the registration details ie are you LOOKING at a Red 32B roadster or a Blue 36 Austin pick up ? What you are looking at should match the logbook description.

    SO, let's do a scenario, '55 Chevy truck, 6 cyl , manual, 100% stock, 14 points VHI and 8 point compliant for identity.
    It would be available with a V8 and auto from the factory with same brakes, axles, steering and suspension as the 6 pot, SO engine and box change to V8 auto is not a substantial change, still 14 point compliant for VHI, but you lose 3 points towards identity, leaving you with 11 points, so still okay. To save the environment you change the rear axle for a better geared one and change the suspension to air bags to be more environmentally road friendly, same as HGVs, then you add power steering for safety. In the grey area, you are still not substantially changed for VHI so still 14 points and MOT exempt with free road tax.
    Oh, hang on a minute, what about identity and age related plate? You lost 1 point for engine, 2 for trans, 2 for axle, 2 for suspension and 2 for steering. Suddenly you only have the 5 points for the chassis left, so your truck now has to go for BIVA and is not therefore eligible for VHI.
    This is where I see most wrong assesments on facebook, as people keep looking at VHI rules to get MOT exemption and take their eye off the ball regarding the identity. They assume the rules are one and the same and if they appear to meet the VHI rules, then they are fine with identity, which they are not. People don't undertsand that these are 2 entirely different things, just using the same categories to add up the points but with different criteria for qualifying for said points. The over riding fact is that IF a vehicle is not 8 point compliant, then it doesn't matter how you interpret the grey areas on VHI for MOT/tax exemption, you are NOT eligible for that as your car/truck needs BIVA............
    This is how I have come to understand thanks for the clarification . I suspect in one years time when all the V112 forms are sitting in a pile on the DVLA's desk then it could be possible to cross reference with motor insurers and compare declared modifications, or if v112 is not on the desk for a vehicle over 40 years old the owner is declaring by default it is modified as ( and this is how I interpret v112 )it is a requirement to submit the form if your vehicle is exempt.

    no, you can still just mot a vhi eligible car that is completely stock. just because it 'is' mot exempt you don't have to declare it or take advantage of that status
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    That has always been ( some ) peoples reason for worry . Up to now modifieds have neevr been able to be easily spotted amongst all the Historics. They now have the tools SHOULD they chose to use them.

    Kapri you've probably had more dealings with them than anyone. Have you been able to get a feeling if that is their intention or impossible to say?
