Vehicles manufactured or registered before 1 January 1960 do not need an MoT test.
The following is a list of the lowest chassis numbers of Jaguar and Daimler cars that were made in 1960 and which therefore still require an MoT test.
To be exempt from MoT testing, your car has to have a chassis number which is lower than those given below. If you have a car registered in 1960 or later, check the chassis number against the list. If you then believe that your car is MoT test exempt, Jaguar Heritage Trust can supply you with a Statement of Build, which will satisfy the requirements of the DVLA or the Local Vehicle Registration Offices. The fee for this service is £21.00. To obtain the Statement of Build, please write with the make, model and chassis number, together with a cheque for £21.00 payable to Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, to: Jaguar Heritage Archive, British Motor Museum, Banbury Road, Gaydon, Warwickshire CV35 0BJ, England or call +44 (0) 1926 645082 for further details. Alternatively, you can order a Heritage Certificate.
