Rolling 30 year old exemption to VED, for classic vehicles:
Re-introduce a 30 year rolling vehicle excise duty exemption scheme, for classic vehicles. For too long now the tax exemption of classic cars has been frozen, to only apply to those manufactured before 1973. History did not simply stop in 1972. These are not cars which are driven everyday but rather on sunny weekends, to attend enthusiast shows etc.. It is vitally important that we help to preserve this important part of British motoring history.
There is a Government e-petition you can sign if you agree to a change.
However, 100,000 signatures are needed to get a hearing.
So far there are 3500 signatures, a long way to go, but we have just under a year to achieve the target (closing date 05/08/2012).
