'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 :)
Ed

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
