Max, nice car, I note from your add on ebay  "Ideal as a London every day car", historic vehicle rules state the vehicle can't be used on a daily basis. Hate you to mislead someone and get in trouble with Big Brother.

Best of luck with the sale.

John

Where does it say that a historic vehicle can’t be used on a daily basis?

Rob, 

A very good question, one which I should has asked, in answer there is a letter in this months Practical Classics mag that I read just the day before my post above, I have spent the afternoon on line and have emailed the FBHVC for a definitive answer. I cannot find on the DVLA web site any information regarding the use of historic vehicles that supports my statement. There is a link in the DVLA web site to the FBHVC web site to talk to a Historical Vehicle expert, which I have done.

So it would appear that I may/might/possibly be WRONG.

If in doubt check first, I'll update this topic when/if I get a reply from the FBHVC.

Regards to all, John

Hi John,

many thanks for the update, it does seem curious to have a vehicle definition with exemptions from tax and MOT testing but without matching constraints on usage... maybe it’s buried in the legislation or somewhere within the charging policy?
