Vehicles over forty-years-old in the UK will be MOT exempt from May 2018 on a rolling basis the Department for Transport (DfT) has announced despite road safety concerns.

Cars pre 1960 have been exempt from the annual test for a few years.

They are moving the date to a rolling 40 years old.

The cars are still required to meet the standard at all times. Given the number of cars that fail their MOT test everyday, and the small number of 40 plus year old cars, I really don't see this as a big issue.
