I've posted this on the other side and have had an inconclusive result. Does anyone in these parts have the definitive answer?

My Ambassador is nearing completion and as it is an American import it needs to be registered. I have been through the process before with my Eldorado which was a 73, but they insisted on registering it as a 74. Anyway, my Ambassador is a 71 so tax exempt and I believe now, mot exempt.

To register my Eldorado I needed to mot it. If my Ambassador will now be mot exempt, do I still need to mot it once, before I can register it?

Anyone know?

MOT not required on bike over 40 years old. Go to DVLA website to request first registration form, think its v55. Also print off MOT exemption form . You will need insurance. DVLA may want to arrange inspection before granting Reg number

Interesting question, and I can't find any reference to your situation.
This leaflet by the DVLA says you need an MOT if appropriate. What does that mean? They may well still want a one off MOT to prove an imported vehicle is to British standards.

Have you tried ringing the DVSA about it, they should have all the MOT information. 0300 123 9000

I suspect they have introduced the MoT exempt rule, but not updated their other info to match.

Looking at it again, "if appropriate" could mean not req.d if MOT exempt due to age.

???

Could equally mean not required for a vehicle under 3 years old.

Well 76 on is tax exempt and dvla, for uk bikes do not go by manufacture date on headstock but by date of first registration, However I did look into the mot exempt issue, and whilst the dvla may not require an mot, ask your insurance co? SOME will want some sort of "roadworthiness" proof, to be fair I will take mine to the mot station and ask for a note something to prove it has been checked Go onto the dvla website they are very helpful if no joy online call them I did when the Tax exempt was due they were incredibly helpful indeed

Would it not be easier just to go through the MOT just once, then you have no problems whatever happens. And you ave proof that the bike is roadworthy for insurance.

Yes, I will mot it, but I was thinking I could get the registration out of the way first.

Just a thought, if I mot it after registration does it need to be offically recorded or can I just ask for an mot without paperwork? (or before it for that matter)

Best to contact the DVSA about that.

An imported vehicle, or one that has been an insurance write-off, needs a VOSA examination to show it is road worthy to standards, not an MoT (although it may need that as well).  These vehicle examination centres are entirely separate from the MoT system.

when you register it make sure it is a registered as a "historic vehicle" else you wont get the tax and mot exemption. it will need to be examined by the DVSA but they will only be making sure it is safe to ride. its a lot easier if it still conforms to original type approval (not modified from standard)
