Default MSVA Tests

Hi has anyone got a bike through this test in Exeter? Does anyone know if you need indicators on a pre 86 bike for the inspection?

Byron and Jeff have passed lots of bikes there.

They work there.

If you need MSVA the bike has to comply with 2016 regulations so yes it needs indicators.

Google MSVA manual and have a read. ( I don't recomend printing it unless you have lots of paper to get rid of.)

Byron and Jeff aren't on this forum but I am and I trained them. I work for DVSA and MSVA is part of my job.

Right! I'm rebuilding a Yamaha XT250 c1980 no log book or reg number, DVLA can't find the details with the chassis number! It's a pain because I'm guessing that I need to add spec that wasn't built into it - like front brake stop light switches? More than an MOT would require? Are you looking for new bikes or are you bike builder tolerant lol?
Thanks for the help

The whole purpose in setting up MSVA in the first place was to enable bike builders to get bikes on the road. Not all countries have a scheme to allow this to happen.

Yes you will need a front brake switch as you have to conform to modern regulations. If the UK scheme was not to european standards we would not be able to use UK vehicles on European roads.

Are you building it using many original parts ie the original engine and suspension ?

If you are you may want to get hold of a yamaha owners club.

Many owners clubs are recognised by the DVLA as experts on their machines.
So if the owners club verify the identity of your bike they can write to DVLA telling them the origin of the bike. Then being more than ten years old it is exempt MSVA.

Worth a go.
