We have unfortunately now been proved correct with a single item before the EC parliament that will prevent any modifying and will, currently, render already modified cars illegal.
Without a large effort over the next 6 weeks this Ã¢â‚¬â„¢proposalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ will pass into law very shortly afterwards.
This means that for even relatively minor modifications from standard - different size wheels, suspension / brake upgrades you will have to submit the vehicle to VOSA for what is known as a BIVA or IVA test - these tests exist already for cars modified significantly beyond a certain point and for Kit Cars and the like - the cost of the test? about Ã‚Â£600 inc the VAT . . .
