The Council of Ministers will soon approve a new Regulation on Historic Vehicles, which may exempt vehicles with a remarkable age from passing the ITV. In some countries of the European Union, such as France and Ireland, these vehicles are already exempted from periodic inspection. These changes are intended to promote the conservation and knowledge of the automotive cultural and industrial heritage (not in vain, Spain has always occupied a prominent level in vehicle manufacturing, and is currently considered the second largest vehicle manufacturer in Europe). What is a historic vehicle? It is a vehicle expressly recognized by the administration, being protected due to its unique characteristics or because it meets all the conditions required in the Regulation that regulates this type of vehicle, and can be classified as: • Group A: vehicles registered in Spain that are dated manufactured over 30 years, with the ITV in force. • Group B: other vehicles that do not meet the requirements of the previous section (eg those imported from another country with a manufacturing date greater than 30 years, or those considered as either of cultural interest, or those that due to their uniqueness are included as collection vehicles). What is the current process for registering a vehicle as historic? For all vehicles in circulation over 30 years old, the process to follow is as follows:1. Issuance of a technical report by a Technical Service for Historic Vehicles (includes the reduced file, and the proposed exemptions and limitations, as well as its condition of originality).2. Resolution of cataloging by the services of Industry of the Autonomous Community.3. Technical inspection for the issuance of a new card by an ITV station.4. Historical registration by the Traffic Headquarters. The new Regulation is intended to facilitate the process of registering a historical vehicle with an abbreviated procedure, not being necessary to carry out steps 1, 2 and 3 in the event that the vehicle is included in the Group A, completing a responsible declaration model whose format will be defined by the DGT and which will enable a new destination for the vehicle: "Historic". But also for vehicles included in Group B, the service is accelerated, since step 2 described above is omitted. What will be the new periodicity? The new periodicities are summarized below: • Age up to 40 years: biennial frequency on the ITV • From 40 to 45 years: triennial frequency • Over 45 years: four-year frequency • Motorcycles: four-year • Mopeds: exempt • Prior to 1950: exempt The future new Regulation indicates: those vehicles classified as historic that were manufactured or registered for the first time before January 1, 1950, as well as mopeds classified as historic, regardless of their age, will be exempt from inspection technique of vehicles, without prejudice to the fact that the owners of these vehicles may submit them to voluntary ITV. What will be the new ITV process? Due to the peculiarities of Historic Vehicles, it is expected that the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism will modify the current ITV Station Inspection Procedure Manual to introduce a specific section regulating the inspection tests for these vehicles. To obtain classification as a historic vehicle for Group B vehicles, the owner must request an inspection from the ITV for the issuance of an ITV card once the data that appears in the report of the Technical Service for Historic Vehicles has been verified. And for Group A vehicles, when the ITV expires, they will be granted the new periodicity associated with the destination defined in the DGT as "Historic".
