The example alongside
is for an MGBGTV8 which had an MOT test yesterday (13th August 2018) but as you
can see the availability of the MOT test station location will take a few days
to become available as presumably the data supplied by the MOT test station has
to be processed by DVSA/DVLA.
The MGBGTV8 tested was built in December
1973 and whilst eligible for an MOT exemption self declaration, that cannot be
made until the next road tax renewal. Then the declaration can be made using a
DVLA Form V112 at a Post Office when renewing the tax at the NIL value VED rate
for a VED exempt car.

drastic reduction in the information available from DVLA on a vehicle and its
former owners made earlier in 2017, this development of making available the location
of previous MOT tests is both useful and welcome news for both a classic car owner
and someone thinking of buying a classic car. Being able to see the MOT test history
of a car is a useful part of checking a car and seeing the location of the earlier
MOT tests does provide information on where the car has been in its past. But
to access that information you do need the latest V5C number.
