Wonder if anyone knows if my 928 will be tax exempt this year, I've read a lot of contradictory info and still no wiser !

The car was first registered on the 6th June 1980 ? so technically it's 40 years old on the 6th June 2020 ?

Or do I have to find out when it was actually first built, and how would I negotiate that minefield ?

Any help is most appreciated , thanks.

Have a look on http://www.gov.uk - currently it still says the vehicle has to have been built before 1st January 1979 or first registered before 8th January 1979 to be exempt:
https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles/ve ... ehicle-tax

On this page it says that the 40-year rolling exemption comes into effect on 1st April each year:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... c-vehicles

The way I read that, vehicles built before 1st/registered before 8th January 1980 will become tax-exempt on 1st April 2020, so your June-registered 928 won't become exempt until 1st April 2021, unless you can prove that it was built before 1st January 1980.

Thank's Michael, would you have any idea how you go about finding when a 928 was built ?

I'm afraid not, there's bound to be someone on here who's been through the process and can advise properly though. Might be worth a call to your local Porsche dealer in the meantime to see if they can help or point you in the right direction.
