Does my 1974 Triumph TR6 need an MoT?

My 1974 Triumph TR6 is a year from its last MoT. DVLA have taxed it at zero rate with the phrase “this vehicle may or may not need an MoT”. How on Earth do I find out? By the way, I have every intention of subjecting it to an annual check with my local garage even though it has done less than 1000 miles this year.

Vehicles more than 40 years old are now exempt from both car tax and the annual MoT test, so your Triumph TR6 does not require an MoT test. However, a condition of your insurance is that you keep your car in a roadworthy condition so it's good to hear that you'll be getting it checked over.
