How often should a vintage or historic car be serviced?
Posted On May 9, 2022
Both classic and historic cars must pass the inspection. If your historic car was built before 1960, then you can have it inspected either at the DVM or in authorized workshops (you have to ask the DVM which they are). You may always buy used cars in chandler.
If your historic car was built after 1960 you can go to any inspection center. In both cases you will have to pass the revision every two years
If you have a vintage car, on the other hand, you will have to take it exclusively to the Civil Motorization, every five years.
Do you pay the tax on vintage cars? What about historic cars?
There is a difference between vintage cars and historic cars as regards the road tax, that is, the property tax on cars, but in reality it all depends on age. For all cars not used for professional use after the thirtieth year from construction (i.e. practically for all vintage cars), the road tax is not paid.bBut if the car circulates on the road (and therefore is a historic car), then it is subject to road tax (on average 30 euros).
For cars between 20 and 29 years old, on the other hand, from January 1, 2019, the 50% discount on the tax that had previously been removed with the 2015 Finance Law has returned. But only for those of historical and collectible interest.
How much does it cost to register a vintage car?
Also on the question of registration there are several things to specify. Registering a vintage car makes no sense, because to be vintage it must have been canceled by the PRA and any re-registration would require the car to be “brought up to standard”, i.e. the installation of everything it needs to circulate. . In practice, you could be forced to upset the classic car, ruining it forever.
As for historic cars, however, they may have been canceled by the PRA by a previous owner and you may want to re-register them to be able to circulate there. In this case you will need the certificate of registration in one of the aforementioned historical registers and the certificate of ownership of the car with authenticated signature.That said, re-registering a historic car will cost you as much as re-registering any other car: around 180 euros if you do everything yourself, even double if you go to a paperwork agency.
