The Irish Morris Minor Owners Club was founded in 1983. Our aims are simply to promote the preservation and use of the Morris Minor.
The IMMOC exists for people who have a Morris Minor, those who have an interest in Morris Minors and those people who use them every day. It is for people to get together and enjoy their Morris Minor.
Objectives of the Club include:
- Providing support and help with the restoration and location of spare parts
- Organising events on the annual calendar, social meetings and parties
- Encouraging participation in the Club, through monthly meetings, rallies and social events
Members of the IMMOC can be found at the following location around Ireland:

Dear IMMOC Members and fellow Classic-Vintage car owners,
We recently received a letter from the IVVCC on the RSA Consultation Document.
The basic of it is there are looking at four options on having road worthiness tests for classic / vintage cars.
The options are:
- Anything after 1st Jan 1980 to be tested (this is the current case)
- Anything after 1st Jan 1960
- Anything over 30 years old (rolling 30 years)
- Anything over 40 years old (rolling 40 years)
They are having a meeting on 30th October in the Venue Room, D'Arcy McGee’s Complex,Spawell,Dublin. The IVVCC have requested two representatives from each club so our chairman Denis McCarthy and myself will attend on your behalf.
RSA Consultation Paper
In accordance with action 59 of the Government's Road Safety Strategy 2013 – 2020, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) is reviewing the road-worthiness testing requirements for vintage vehicles.
As part of this review, a public consultation has been launched and individuals, clubs or associations are invited to give their views on a number of proposals concerning the future road-worthiness testing requirements for such vehicles.
(The RSA document can be accessed by clicking on the attachment below).
The IVVCC has had meetings with the RSA on this matter for some months ahead of the publication of the consultation document. When initially consulted by the RSA it was clear that they were focused on changing the requirement date for testing from 1980 to 1960. The IVVCC strongly recommended a rolling 30 year arrangement. The fact that the RSA are now seeking views on 4 possible options including a 40 and a 30 year rolling period should be consider as very positive. The consultation document needs to be studied carefully and responses should be based on factual information and given careful consideration. The board of the IVVCC are currently considering the document and will be advising members of their proposed response by the end of this month. In the interim the IVVCC will be holding a meeting with affiliated clubs to update them on developments. The details on this meeting will be announced shortly.
Classic and vintage car owners are requested to read and familiarise themselves with the options and the case made within the consultation paper but to hold off replying until they have also considered the IVVCC's proposed response.
Feedback should be provided using the dedicated response form which is available at the link below.
