    there is estimated 40,000mot exempt vehicles . there as been a white paper all about it and a consultation in 09-10 . so far nothing as happened . google .hgv mot testing exemptions:a consultation.
    also google v112
    or for vehicles over 3,500kg v112g .

    fair ground ,circus etc have just the same right as other users . they have no special rights .
    if your vehicle fits the rules then your vehicle is exempt .
    just most never think to check.
    i build vehicles just to use the exemption rules . thats why i was given that white paper to coment on years ago.

    A hydraulic oil leak from a crane would most likely related to the crane itself, not the automotive system.
    A crane would be subject to a 6 monthly Thorough Examination under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, as is all industrial lifting equipment.
    In addition, a before-use check is also mandatory.

    I am afraid an MOT for mobile cranes would not have saved any lives in this tragic case.:Sad:

    MOTs have been removed from historic vehicles recently.

    NO MOT & NO Vehicle excise duty

    Wish I still had my old cars now!
