MOT'S FOR HISTORIC VEHICLES & DRIVE IT DAY
At the March monthly meeting comments were made about the relaxing of the need for MOT's on Historic Vehicles. One member present is a member of the Police and he told us that new requirements on this subject are arriving with them regularly. It appears that the police will not accept an owner's assurances that his car is roadworthy and will require a valid MOT to satisfy them. He also said that the insurance companies had adopted the same attitude. However, Trevor reports that he has contacted the TR insurers and that they have said they will not require a valid MOT but will need proof that the car is roadworthy. What a mess. This must be one of the most ridiculous and unwanted pieces of legislation ever.
DRIVE IT DAY
Trevor has investigated the suggestion of a run to Fountains Abbey on Drive it Day. Members of the National Trust will be admitted free of charge. Non-members however will have to pay £15 per person. Previous experience suggests that members will not take kindly to parting with cash to gain entry which would result in a low turnout.
Please send your views on this and also please indicate which of the suggested events on the list of events posted two days ago you would choose. Please let Trevor on email@example.com or Allen on
