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 Great Britain requires all participants to declare their cars as road legal as well as
requiring cars to have an MOT.
The Steam Car Club of Great Britain caters for owners of steam cars and steam cycles
old and new. You do not have to own a steam car or cycle. Perhaps you want one, or
are just interested in these vehicles or in their further development.
