'78 250E tax exemption clarification
« on: February 12, 2018, 09:38:52 PM »
Hi. My T Reg 250E was registered in Aug 1978. So it will be 40 this August. Am I correct in thinking that it will be
tax exempt in January 2019?

Thanks :)

How does it work with foreign RDs?  They may be just as old but obviously were first registered here much later
Thanks

You can have black and silver plates once your bike is registered as historic regardless of whether they had them originally or not.  M.O.T exempt is different, currently  this applies to vehicles registered before 1st January 1960

Phil, at the end of the day it should be the same. all RD's here in the uk are foreign. no matter what part of Europe they were 1st registered they were built in the same factory (japan).  let's not forget we are still part of the EU so no difference. convert the bike to uk spec.
eg mph speedo ect but this is down to owner if they wish.

Thats generally true assuming it was registered and got a date related plate. if you got a first registration with a Q plate then it will use that date.

It will not become tax exempt until 1st April in the year after it is 40 years old . In your case 1st April 2019.
Currently mot exemption is pre 1960 however from 20th May this year all vehicles registered as historic will be mot exempt.
