ATV renewal options

ATV owners need to study their DVLA renewal notices carefully if they are to benefit from the 1995 Finance Act.

The creation of the "light agricultural vehicle" within the special concessionary group retained the advantage for ATVs. But owners who registered their ATVs as works trucks within the former "special machines" group will receive renewal demands for £150. Re-registering machines as exempt or light agricultural vehicles is clearly an option which should be considered.
