Crown Vehicle

Question

Hi

 

I have a log book which advises the vehicle is a crown vehicle,

does this mean it is Tax & MOT exempt?

 

Any good advice welcomed

 

Regards

 

Steve

A number of agencies were entitiled to use 'Crown Vehicles'. Don't know about MOT, but yes they are tax exempt. Back in 't day they had a purpleish red square with a black crown on the windscren.

Dear All,

 

The REME Museum's Scammell Amazon tank transporter was a "Crown Vehicle" when operated by FVRDE / MOD PE. I think that there was a certificate involved so that there could be no misunderstanding.

 

I don't know what the score was with an MOT.

Isn't the important point here that it was a Crown Vehicle with the emphasis on the "was"? Any exemptions it may have had expired when it passed into civilian hands.

– Was a Crown Vehicle – The very point I was going to make not knowing what type of vehicle brought about the question while this is an excellent Forum possibly a phone call to the DVLA would be appropriate and remove guess work

There's no specific type of Crown Vehicle, I know of things varying from a Stonefeild to Nissan saloon car that were classed as Crown. It is the agency that owns them.

You need to change the V5 to historic or whatever the class is for the vehicle.

 

Operating the vehicle listed as a Crown Vehicle is illegal as it is no longer owned or operated by the Crown.
