Do I need a valid MoT certificate to drive in France?

I am taking a 1969 MGB Tourer to France soon. The car doesn’t require an MoT certificate in the UK so will I be legal to travel in France without?

Since the tax disc was abolished the advice to travellers has been to print off a page from the DVLA’s website which confirms your taxation and MoT status should you be challenged. We'd also recommend printing off a copy of your insurance documents and any other relevant information. We spoke to Geoff Lancaster at the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs and he confirmed this was still the advice. He added, 'Admittedly the fine detail of historic vehicle exemptions differs from member state to member state but this will not cause a problem…at least not until after Brexit.'
