NCT regulations for Vintage Cars

NCT requirement for vintage cars

The Rules and regulations that apply to private and commercial vehicles more than 30 years old.

Vintage vehicles up to the age of 40 must still undergo a roadworthiness test, if used in a public place.

Vehicles over 40 years old are exempt from roadworthiness testing but only if used for non-commercial purposes, and you are still required by law to ensure it’s maintained in good condition and does not pose a risk to other road users.

If a vehicle is over 40 years old and is used for commercial reasons (e.g., as a wedding hire vehicle), a roadworthiness test is required.
