When will my 1976 Triumph Stag become tax exempt?
My Triumph Stag was built in May 1976. When will it be tax exempt?

The Historic Vehicle taxation class is now a ‘rolling’ system once again, meaning that a vehicle that’s 40 or more years old can be reclassified as ‘historic’ and eligible for free car tax (VED). The rolling system updates occur each April. So, from April 2017 all pre-1977 vehicles will be eligible. You'll need to do the paperwork, though - it won't automatically happen.
