The All-Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicle Group (HVG) has ruled out campaigning for changes to the present rolling tax exemption for classic cars. Although a recent survey by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) showed increased amounts of spending by owners of historic vehicles and an increase in the number of historic vehicles more than 30 years old, the HVG chair, Sir Greg Knight MP, said he supported the 40 year rolling exemption introduced in 2014 but ruled out pressing for a 30 year rollover change proposed by an online petition.

Comment: the 40 year road tax concession was a very welcome benefit for classic cars which clock up modest annual mileages, but pressing too energetically for more concessions could easily have unintended consequences.
