My understanding is that it mostly revolves around incorrectly registered kit cars eg Cobra replica that is still registered as a Jaguar or a Lotus 7 replica registered as a Ford Escort etc etc. The MOT tester will want to see that what he is testing is the car as registered on the V5.
Also touches on cars with modified chassis which should have been sent through the IVA test but haven't been. ( I don't know if your average MOT tester will know a modified chassis from a standard one unless its a bit extreme! )
Emissions for new builds going through IVA is being looked at but I don't know what the definitive requirements are, all I've seen so far are proposals.
At the moment rebodied cars on an unmodified chassis are exempt from any additional inspection.
