Do I only need to fill in the MoT exemption form when I tax my classic car?

I have a 1971 Mini. I taxed it (free) in February when I bought it. The MoT runs out on 23 May 2018. Do I fill in the V112 MoT exempt declaration form when I tax it again next February?

You do not have to apply to stop getting an MoT for your vehicle each year - but you must still keep it in a roadworthy condition. That said, we understand that each time you apply for your historic road tax, you'll need to declare your car MoT exempt.
