It appears that significant additions are being made to the MOT test procedures on classic cars ,items  such as drive shaft gaiter condition,operative and calibrated speedometer and many other items, does anyone have more specific details ?. It has always been a legal reguirement  to have a device indicating a vehicles MPH  as part of the old construction & use regs ,I used to calibrate a speedo  on my rolling road,  but how many MOT stations have such equipment  ,another  badly introduced piece of Gov't (red tape) and poorly applied EU directive.
