Rodding and the Law

MOT, SVA, Construction & Use, & importing a modified vehicle

Association of Car Enthusiasts A grave concern for all people who enjoy modifying their cars, from the simple fitting of a set of none factory wheels to an engine change and more. This site has been set up to bring us all together and try and keep our freedom to work and modify our own choice of vehicle, if we don't fight and win this one, car modifying will be no more. click on the link for the full info.

Importing a Vehicle
If you are thinking of importing a modified Vehicle from the states then read what you need to do here to stay legal.

Law and the Hot Rodder
