'Veteran' car benefits

Hi all


Been looking at adding a 'classic' car to the garage and I see a lot of cars advertised, enthusiastically, with veteran status. What does this mean in reality? What benefits does one get from having veteran status?

MFK lasts a very long time, 6 rather than the theoretical 2 for an older car. The car must be very 'original' & I think there is an annual milage limitation.

Yes to all these points, which is why my 3 (and soon to be 4) veteran bikes run on normal plates.

However, you can run up to 6 vehicles on the same plates and insurance, rather than the usual 2, so buy 6!

Veteran plates or not, insurace goes down once they hit 30!

Tom

P.S. Just did MFK on one, six years since the last, though previous to that it was 10, and one has gone 14!

Thanks all! So basically longer periods between MFK, lower insurance and the ability to have more vehicles on a single plate.

And completely useless tires harder than stone and visibly cracking.
