What sort of shows did you do Nick.

I assume that the LEZ exemption status is about your use of the truck and therefore not a transferable thing

Unless Nick sells it to another showman for exclusive use in that showman's business, then all exemptions are immediately null.

One of the biggest problems with people who use this scam is that they'll invariably be left high and dry by their insurance company in the event of any claim. It's unlikely the insurance will be valid having been obtained on false pretences.

As a result, the scammer could properly face both criminal prosecution and - in the event of damage or injury to a third party - civil lawsuit(s).

As before, it's a fairly common scam and the implications are very often just not on the scammer's radar. The exemptions re testing and stuff do NOT mean the vehicle does not have to comply with Con and Use regulations etc.

The other common scam recently propogated by a certain 'genius' who shall remain nameless (on public forums, anyway), was equally idiotic and similarly has left a good number of 'specialist vehicle' drivers wide open to prosecution / no insurance.

Hi Neil,

Happy to chat by PM but would prefer to keep my business private.

The LEZ exemption is very much dependent on the truck being an integral part of a showmans attraction, and used solely in association with a showmans business. The new owner would be responsible for telling TFL, if this was no longer the case.

It's worth pointing out that as a Euro 3 truck, it could easily be modified to meet the Euro 4 standard by fitting a DPF by Eminox or one of the other approved installers.
