UK pre '77 minis to be exempt MoT testing

Seems like the pre '77 minis will be exempt from the current MoT test shortly under a new 40 year exemption ruling

I honestly think thats a dangerous route to go. I will still have my car checked just for my own peace of mine. What if a brake hise splits? or a swivel is not ok...Ive been in a car when the bottom swivel broke. I was doing 20mph and I just went over a speed bump. Not very nice. Needed a new pair of undies, pants and shoes! Who agrees with me ? R

My MOT expires on 14-MAY-18. So what do I do? Not drive it until 20th May or get another MOT for 5 days :?: ;)
