That’s because there are exceptions to the historic exemptions depending on the degree of modification. So that’s why they refer you to the exemption guidance to see if it applies to you...

"This vehicle's MOT has expired
You can be fined up to £1000 for driving without a valid MOT
This vehicle may be MOT exempt, for more information refer to MOT exemption guidance"


To get MOT exemption you need to fill in and send them the V112 declaration form with "R" ( historic vehicle over 40 years old ) as the reason for exemption.
After that the renewal will be online each time you re-tax.
If you don't send the form you won't automatically get exemption.
They need the signed form in the first instance and after that you are just re-confirming your written declaration.

Yes It is strange but they all read the same once expired. :??
You do not have to apply for MOT exempt it is automatically generated.
If you click on the part on the RED notice that reads "MOT EXEMPTION GUIDENCE" it explains whats exempt.

Take a look to confirm no notification required for MOT Exempt--
https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles

Secound paragraph of -
What you have to do

You must apply for a vehicle tax exemption to stop paying vehicle tax. This is sometimes called putting a vehicle into the ‘historic tax class’.

You do not have to apply to stop getting an MOT for your vehicle each year. However, you must still keep it in a roadworthy condition.

Went to the post office with V112 but they couldn't do anything with it as only for use when changing vehicle to Historic and MOT exemption.

Spoke to DVLA and DVSA and they both confirmed what Steve said previously. As long as it's 40 years old and not modified (and roadworthy), then no mot is automatically not required , if that makes sense.

The warning on the .gov page about no mot is an automatic generic one so ignore it.

Got there in the end. Just another 3 bikes to get Historic registered this week !!
