EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Motor Vehicles (Approval) (Fees) Regulations 2001 (“the 2001 Regulations”). Those Regulations prescribe the fees payable in connection with applications and appeals under the Motor Vehicles (Approval) Regulations 2001 (“the Approval Regulations”). The Approval Regulations allow single vehicles to be approved before they enter into service in terms of their design, construction, equipment and marking.

Regulation 3 increases the fees prescribed by the 2001 Regulations. The increased fees for passenger vehicles are set out in Table 1 below (with the percentage increase since the fees were last fixed shown in brackets).

In the case of the vehicles mentioned above, the fee payable on an appeal against the refusal of an application for a Minister’s approval certificate is the same amount as the appropriate fee payable under regulation 4 (regulation 7). These fees are increased accordingly.

Regulation 4 inserts new paragraphs (1)(g) and (5) into regulation 4 of the 2001 Regulations. New paragraph (1)(g) provides for a new fee so as to allow the approval of new passenger vehicles or new goods vehicles under the Approval Regulations where those vehicles respectively satisfy the requirements of the 1984 or 1982 Regulations. New paragraph (5) defines a new vehicle as being a passenger or goods vehicle where the recorded distance travelled, including that before any change of odometer, is considered to be a maximum of 3,000 kilometres or 1,865 miles.
