    MOT after IVA

    I passed my IVA in 2019 and suddenly had a panic about when my first MOT is due so I looked up my reg online...it just days 'unknown' for when my first MOT is due !!!!
    Is it 3 years after registration like a new car ?

    I do mine every 12 months.....

    If you built the car yourself, what can it possibly fail an mot on that you cant sort out yourself?

    That way if you have a mot you will never have any question of doubt if you are in that situation?

    IVA is the same as having a new car. No need to MOT until the third year

    it is really interesting how hard it is to get any information from the government web site. As I have an age related plate Im starting to wonder if it says 'unknown' because I am MOT exempt due to my 1973 plate and donor car ?

    As has been said your first MOT after three years. Be aware though that until you have your first MOT the reminders and websites will say unknown. Apparently the systems are completely separate and do not talk. Therefore when I asked DVSA to confirm what date I needed to do my MOT their response was “don’t know mate as your car is not even on our system”.

    Does the 3 yrs after IVA apply equally if the car is registered as new or if the car is made from “old” parts attaining an age related plate?

    logically if you were using donor axles/brakes, I would have thought the 3 yrs didn’t apply.

    mine went through SVA 21 yrs ago, age related registration, I got it mot’d after 12 months as I couldn’t establish the real requirement.

    if I couldn’t see it in black and white, I didn’t want to take the risk of being unable to produce the mot if I had an accident.

    The 3 years also applies to age related registrations.

    The 3 year rule seems to apply to all IVA vehicles regardless of donor parts or all new parts as the IVA is seen as a new inspected vehicle. Does seem a grey area and I cannot see it in any document on the gov.uk site.

    Hi,

    I thought you had 3 years if the car was registered new, but 1 year if it was age related.
    Could be wrong, I was wrong once back in 1984.
