New laws could result in big changes for motorists
April will mark the beginning of several important changes for motorists, with new rules and laws coming into action.
The Government is considering a number of crucial changes, including changes to our yearly road tax. We have taken a closer look at some of the rules that could affect our daily driving habits.
Increasing Vehicle Excise Duty (VED)
Vehicle Excise Duty – or Road Tax as it is more commonly known – is once again on the rise and motorists will be paying more to keep their cars on the roads.
The figure you pay for your tax largely depends on the car you drive, specifically its CO2 emissions. Cars will fall into specific brackets based on their CO2 emissions and could pay as little as £10 or upwards of £2245.
The rise also includes an increase to the standard rate (second year and onwards) of car tax, with the figure rising by £5 to £155 in total.
