The Steam Car Club of Great Britain
Information for steam car owners

During 2007 and 2008 The Steam Car Club of Great Britain made extensive enquires with DVLA and VOSA regarding their conflicting opinions as to whether steam cars should have an MOT.   With the help of F.B.H.V.C. and following direct meetings with VOSA, VOSA acknowledged it had made a mistake and that in fact ALL STEAM CARS REQUIRE AN MOT, the club made this clear to all members in early 2008.

The committee hope this statement helps all members and other clubs who might be confused or not up to speed with regards to our findings.

PLEASE note the Road Traffic Act is only enforceable whilst on the public highway.   Some events held off road ask for steam cars to be road worthy.   Beware, an MOT is not proof of road worthiness it in fact explains this on the MOT document.   Road worthiness is a separate issue therefore it is the owners responsibility to keep the car in a road worthy condition, do not rely on an MOT.

The Steam Car Club of Gt Britain requires all participants to declare their cars as road legal as well as requiring cars to have an MOT.
