    Has anyone any experience with the new MOT regs for post 1960 LGVs? The Milly is due taxing and on checking the V112G it is no longer relevant to any exemption on there, no surprise.. I checked on the latest MOT requirements and plating is a prerequisite also I could not see any reference to testing historic vehicles. I called DVLA and they mentioned the rolling 30 exemption for LGVs, on further questioning this was forgotten. In the end they had no idea what to do. What a load of ....... Anyone with any insight, I'm confused and fed up with the whole process. Beer required! Cheers Iain

    Thanks Steve, silly mistake. I should know better as the BARV was Centurion based. The first was designed at FTB then the Royal Ordnance factory at Leeds built another five or six. I`m not sure as they were often changed around. there was always one on "Fearless" and one on "Intrepid" I once taught a R A F helicopter pilot how to drive a BARV though only on the beach and not in the water.

    That is similar to the one I saw but they were in a reservoir near Otterburn, the picture was hanging in the MT section after being presented by the team, trying to remember 30 years ago as well. Wonder if its still around
