    you should also be expecting a refund. Historic could have been made in 2015.

    check the date of manufacture on DVLA car tax checker. If it states 1975, apply now

    As per Roger’s suggestion, link to DVLA check site earlier in this thread, checked mine there, date of manufacture was 1980 so decided to give it a go and got a positive result. If you get a manufacture date older than 40 years you should qualify, give it a go nothing to lose.

    I still don't get this...Mine was a then SVA built/on the road car in 1999 on a 67' donor plate but is obviously not 40yrs old yet as a Cobra, so how do some of you with later registered cars getting historic ?

    i think it was the luck of the draw on who in the DVLA did the docs for them at the time. i assume V5's states two different dates for those who got it?

    I've read the entire thread.
    Pragmatic interpretation of the rules imho..... bit like tax: tax minimisation vs tax evasion. You decide.

    As above check the Gov.uk site for the date of manufacture - that seems to be what determines Historic. The tax rules are different to MOT. MOT specifically exceptions cars that have significant chages:the
    "You do not need to get an MOT if:
    - the vehicle was built or first registered more than 40 years ago
    - no ‘substantial changes’ have been made to the vehicle in the last 30 years, for example replacing the chassis, body, axles or engine to change the way the vehicle works"
    So a kit first used 15 years ago needs an MOT

    But Historic Tax rules are simpler:

    "You can apply to stop paying for vehicle tax from 1 April 2020 if your vehicle was built before 1 January 1980. You must tax your vehicle even if you do not have to pay.


    If you do not know when your vehicle was built, but it was first registered before 8 January 1980, you can still apply to stop paying vehicle tax."

    Both those dates can be found by putting your car's details in here: Link
