Claim for Exemption from Goods Vehicle Testing Requirements and Vehicles outside the scope
of the 1988 regulations, but having an allocated Plate
 
Declaration
 Please read the appropriate notes below and overleaf before completing this form.

I claim that the vehicle Registration Mark
for which I have applied for a vehicle licence disc to commence on
is exempt from the provision of section 53(2) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 under the Goods Vehicle (Plating and Testing)
Regulations 1988. 

The vehicle falls into one of the following four categories:-

1. it is exempt under Regulation 44(1)(e) because it is used used on the public road by an Order made under
section 44 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 *

2. it is used on certain off-shore islands or other specified areas which are exempted by Regulation 44(2) *

3. it is a vehicle of a class listed in Schedule 2 (see above for list of vehicles ) which exempts it from the testing requirement

4. it is outside the scope of Schedule 2, i.e. being a heavy/light locomotive or motor tractor within the meaning of  the Road Traffic Act 1988, but has an allocated revenue weight.

Signature * See Note 3 below
If you are signing for a partnership, limited company
or other legal entity, give your position in the firm
Test Certificates

Notes
1. A current test certificate or certificate of temporary
exemption must be produced with an application for a
heavy goods vehicle if the vehicle is one to which section
53(2) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 applies by virtue of
the Goods Vehicles (Plating and Testing) Regulations
1988. In cases of doubt, the Regulations should be
consulted, but their general effect is that goods vehicles
over 3500kgs gross weight (revenue weight for Vehicle
Excise Duty (VED) purposes) are subject to testing.

2. Classes of vehicle to which Section 53(2) does not apply
are specified in the Schedule to the Regulations
(see list above ).

If you consider your vehicle meets one of these
descriptions, you must complete the declaration on the
relicensing application (V10/V11) and submit one of
these forms for exemption on each occasion that a licence
is applied for.


3. Some vehicles which would normally require to have test
certificates may be specially exempted if used on a road
for a purpose set out in Regulation 44(1) or within the
limits set out in Regulation 44(2) of the Goods Vehicles
Plating and Testing) Regulations 1988.
Regulation 44(2) reads as follows:

"The provisions of section 53(1) and (2) of the 1988 Act
shall not apply to the use of a vehicle in so far as such
use occurs in any place (excluding the Isle of Wight,
the islands of Lewis, Mainland (Orkney), Mainland
Shetland) and Skye) being an island or to any area
mainly surrounded by water, being an island or area from
which motor vehicles not constructed for special purposes
can at no time be conveniently driven to a road in any
other part of Great Britain by reason of the absence of any
bridge, tunnel, ford or other way suitable for the passage
of such motor vehicles".

In either of these circumstances a claim for exemption
and a Declaration must be made before a vehicle licence
disc can be issued.

Greg, hi, your last post would seem to imply that vehicles over 3.5 tonnes would need to be plated unless they are psv.
I think a lot of us on the site run S56. My paperwork says "private heavy goods", I suppose this means I need plating. Up till now I just had an MOT. Is this a new rule?
Cheers, Andy.

goods vehicle test not needed if your vehicle is a motorhome, a lot of people have their ..lets say s56 as private hgv and classed as a camper, the testers dont look at the log book and if you have a camper they will test it as one.

I met a man tonight who today had his exemption from testing refused when he went for road tax, he doesn't a dodge but a 22ft iveco bus/camper, he explained that he had given the form for exemption with his application and the lady scanned the barcode on the v5 and the computer went all STOP.
NO this vehicle cannot be exempted.
The lady then phoned the dvla and spent 20 minutes talking back and forth between them her and him.
The upshot was they said, what is the vehicle used for as it is still classed as a bus.
he told them his circus type work and they said "do you own the circus?" he said no, they said "no exemption"

i asked him the vehicle weight, 5.6 tonne, same as my bus and what form did he use, he said v112
so i asked him again, v112 he said, not v112g.

so there was the problem, with a 5.6 tonne taxable weight he was using the wrong form,

poor bloke,he was worried he wouldnt get tax, and to be honest the amount of extra gear he had on it i dont think it would be testable anyway!

I've just acquired my second Dodge, this one being a 1988 crewcab 4wd 3 way tipper, fitted with big hydraulic front winch, twin rear wheels and mud terrain type tyres. I've been looking at VOSA and DVLA websites re MOT exemption and O licences. The vehicles will be used in my tree surgery business (domestic and a bit of woodland work, but no big forestry stuff) I would interpret dual purpose as meaning having genuine working ability and use off road, and would plan to apply for exemption with form V112g. I would still keep the motor in good order of course, but it does help keep costs/admin/deadlines easier if it can be exempted. Any comments or advice would be welcome,
Cheers, Chainsaw Charlie AKA maybelateronText to be set font.

Reclass your vehicle to special vehicles (SV) if not already and use the V112G as stated in posting above.

Your vehicle falls within the duel purpose catagory and Special vehicles are taxed the same as PLG price. You can be exempt with private HGV but given your ocupation I would go for SV.

There is a forestry taxation class but I am not sure if this is a restricted use taxation class, restricted meaning 'use to drive between two bits of land in ocupation by the driver and not exceeding 6.5 miles per week on highways.' Restricted use covers works trucks, mobile crane units, forestry, agriculture and some others.

Karrier knows all about this.

I would agree with JPI, your vehicle is just that dual purpose and special vehicles is the best class.

I know nothing about O licences though.

Hi, having recently bought an RB75 MOT Exempt recovery truck, I was visited by a VOSA official within days [they seem to be having a clampdown on MOT Exempt But Possibly Dangerous Vehicles] who gave the truck a swift MOT check, found some minor faults [loose headlight lens, slight drip from spec ram, and possibly corroded brake pipe] and slapped a road use prohibition order on it which can only be removed by having a full MOT check[given a week to fix and comply]. Tried to book in for MOT and was told there was a six week waiting list [due mainly to the number of MOT Exempt trucks needing checked]. Whilst being all in favour of no dangerous vehicles being allowed on the roads it has become evident that there's no advantage to MOT exemption when you can be kicked off the road at possibly inconvenient times. Far less hassle to get MOT'd and plated. Suits me anyway as I'll be able to carry goods too.

,

In reply to this posting I will point out that VOSA can kick you off the road in any vehicle mot'ed or not if the vehicle is in an unroadworthy condition. Exemption should only be done if you are a competant mechanic who keeps the vehicle up to spec and know about moting. I spent my first few years out of school in the pre mot checking part of the garage I worked in so have experience of mot's.
I am sorry to hear of your 6 week waiting, contact VOSA you shoud be able to get a test sooner.

Re:Goods vehicle testing exempt vehicles.

Hi there, from my previous research into this area I am sure your bus can be classified as MOT and O licence exempt on the grounds that it is permanently fitted with specialist equipment which is in use when the vehicle is stationary, and the sole purpose of the vehicle is to move the equipment from
John O Groats to Lands End, so to speak. Regarding the Fire Engine and them good ol folk at the Drivers' and Vehicles Loss Adjusters I guess your only hope is the provide some Army records relating to the vehicle confirming its nature as a Fire Engine, but I imagine little change of Army helping with such details? I went through similarish procedure to get original reg no reinstated on a 1959 farm tractor, but was lucky enough to be able to speak to the actual salesman who originally sold it and he gave me a copy of the original sale invoice. Good luck
PS spending this evening filling a big hole where the roof meets the windscreen on my RB66..I think she may have spent to long near the coast getting salt spray.

 Did you get a PG9 (I) or a PG9 (d)?

Sorry to hear about it, so what did they actually say?
Is your vehicle registered as recovery and why is it not v112g applicable if it is registered as a recovery.

Has the vehicle been impounded or were you able to drive it home and what defects did they find if any?

Have they ordered a full test to get the prohibition lifted?

 Not quite sure how they will cancel the whole v112g listed vehicles from testing but I can see some of the categories being removed.

My local council depot has just been rebuilt and they now have a 25ton lift on lane 5 so I can get my vehicles tested without having  go to local vosa 30 miles away

Retaxed my S75 organ truck ( display 14) yesterday, no issues with V112G, however, they have changed the form slightly from last year, and you now have to state the number of the exemption on the form.

New wording is:
it is a vehicle of a class listed in schedule 2 (see over the page) which exempts it from the testing requirement,
please state the number of the exemption claimed here.  -- .

The exemption number is then entered into the computer system, so make sure you know which exemption you are claiming for before you go.

bad luck - sounds a right f***in miserable approach to a cracked headlight and missing bump stop! Would of expected a 7 or 14 day period in which to rectify those faults and re-present vehicle for inspection, not an impound and certainly not a fine and 6 points, which is down right disgusting - only one (random - flagging down every commercial vehicle) pull by Vosa (in my old Transit whilst towing a trailer) and the guy I dealt with was jolly decent - one issue with trailer, was sent on way and asked to re-present trailer for inspection within a number of days - there are some right power tripping twats out there aren't there :(
it seemed like a good idea at the time

Oh I know they are gonna get worse and I will be getting my vehicles tested starting this winter, lucky for me, my local council depot has just been rebuilt and they now have a 25 ton lift and can do my motorhome and horsebox camper mobile workshop on lane 5 and I don't have to do a 70 mile round trip to vosa .
From what I can gather (was talking to a military truck nut the other day) they are just gonna hound vehicles over 10 years old off the road.

just spoken to Vosa today, to try to get some clarification on what steps will be necessary if (when) we loose display vehicle exemption.
Was told that it will likely be "some time" yet before some exemptions are removed as legislation has not begun yet -so make of that what you will!
Anyway, if you do need to register your vehicle for plating, the following forms will be what you need:-

If the vehicle has NEVER been plated then you will need to send form VTG01 to VOSA together with all manufacturers specifications.

If the vehicle has been plated at any time in the past then the form you need is VTG10 together with a description of any alterations made to the vehicle since the last plate.
