Will the new MoT changes affect my diesel car?

I have a 2008 Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI. It is not fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) as standard so how will the May 2018 MoT changes affect this type of car?

If a DPF was not standard manufacturer spec for your car, the new MoT rules will not affect you. The clamp down will only impact owners who have illegally had the DPF removed or tampered with: www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/legal-motoring-advice/20.../
