I've got a B+E license, and a pre-1998 tow vehicle of a decent size. I want to tow a Beetle project using an A-frame (Beetle-specific A-frames clip onto the front axle beam rather than using chains). My old race car weighed less than 650kg ready to race, and this one has no engine so it'll be lighter still, and therefore doesn't need to be braked. All seems good so far!
Then I read the post about IVA requirements.
As this is a project car, although it is still MOT'd, it's not insured or taxed, so logic says to treat it as trailer - it fits the requirements above.
BUT, if I treat it as a trailer, then does it need to be IVA'd? Technically it has become a trailer only when the A-frame is bolted up! I can't claim that it's been a trailer since before the IVA introduction as it's still MOT'd! Am I reading too much into this? I need to tow it about 90 miles so I want to get it right!
