The government has announced measures to help motorists cut the cost of running a car. Below are the measures announced by Justice Secretary Chris Grayling:
– The fees charged prior to obtaining a licence will be reviewed, including the current £31 for the theory test, £62 for the practical test and £50 fee for the provisional licence, to identify any opportunity to save money for the 1.5m car drivers who take their test every year
– Whiplash cheats will be targeted by new independent panels which will ensure only evidence from accredited professionals can be considered. As a result, exaggerated or fraudulent claims will not be allowed whilst genuine claimants will get the help they deserve.
– The statutory maximum price of the MOT test for a car will be frozen at £54.85 until 2015
– In order to tackle high motorway fuel prices, new comparison road signs will be trialled that will show prices at different services stations en route.
