DVLA do specifically say the vehicle must be manufactured in 1980 to qualify, so I am sure it'll be rejected and sent back.


Good spot Dan. I wonder if we'll all get stitched up for another year?

I'm sure we will. Unfortunately I only spotted that on the photo I took of the front page after I'd already sent it off, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. I shall probably tax mine in May now.

Also wondering if that 'manufactured 1981' statement will also screw up the MOT exemption as well. I suppose I'll find out when I try to tax it!

Also if you search on the vehicle's record on the gov website it states 1981 as the manufacture year, so it will definitely be rejected:

I hate to say it, and don't want to cause any arguments, but nobody is really being "stitched up". Cock ups from DVLA employees doesn't really replace the actual facts.
Apart from the very first prototype, there isn't a DeLorean out there which should legally be allowed to be claimed as a historical vehicle this year according to the rules of satisfaction for this status in the UK.

April '22 should be the earliest any DeLorean owners should hope to be able to initiate this claimed status, and even then only for 1981 models. '82 models waiting for April '23 and the few '83 models having to wait until April '24.

Dem be the rules. Anyone sideswiping the rules will be consequential fluke. It will be an exception, not a rule and shouldn't be counted as being typical in any regard.

It shouldnt do. Since our cars are declared manufactured as 1981, it should be exempt.

I think it's the complete lack of consistency, logic or accountability that gets us frustrated, rather than the 'rules'.

Has anyone had any success taxing a vehicle without an MOT?

Not sure why you would want to tax a vehicle without an MOT? Unless its being kept parked on the road and even then, a delorean isn't the kind of car one should just leave parked.

If however you havent registered the car yet (being a recent import) with the dvla, you wont be able to tax it anyway. An MOT is required before you can register and tax the car for road use. As long as the car is insured and you have booked an MOT you are allowed to drive to and from the MOT station without roadtax. Once you have a valid MOT you then have to register and pay a years roadtax at the same time and then roughly 2 weeks later, a V5 lands at your door.
