Correct.  Q plate and no emissions on V5 = no emissions test, visible smoke only.

Go back and complain.

Yep - the key point is “treat the following as first used before 1975”. 
 

From then on any time it says “for cars first used on or before...” a Q uses this as a Top Trump card. 👍

Lets hear it for the Q plate :t-up:

 

Whoop whoop! Dont know why you would want the age related plate on a kit car. 

Just more hassle 👍

In case you fancy misspelling your name and putting that on instead 😁

Thank you for the clarification - i feel much more knowledgeable (and pious) going back to the KwikFit MOT person now.

This kind of thing was the point of my original post. Hope you get it sorted, amazing how many testers can follow the guidelines 🙄

A bit late to this thread but just to affirm what what has been posted already, the Q plate is treated as before 1st August 1975, as are all kit cars up to 1998. Emissions testing required from 1998 on age related plate or 'cherished' number plate.

Thanks Martyn.  I spoke to the Kwik FIt tester and we went through the regs on the phone - he agreed with the Q plate being treated as pre Aug 1975 so i'm taking it back in for a "retest" .....

 

Thanks all for info
