The cost of renewing or applying for a driving licence is set to fall under proposals announced by the government.

 

Fees would fall by a third for digital applications and 15% for paper.

 

Drivers who apply for their first licence online would see a saving of £16, with the cost dropping from £50 to £34.

 

Drivers who renew their licence after 10 years would benefit from a fee reduction from £20 to £14.

 

And all driver tachograph cards would reduce to £32 from £38.

 

The proposals are part of a public consultation on driver licensing fees - the changes would save drivers nearly £18 million and the industry around £2 million every year.

 

Subject to the consultation and parliamentary process the new fees are planned to come into force by 31 October 2014.

They'll have to think of something as they are already set to loose income when "failure to display" tax disc doesn't exist after October as well

The new business about the tax not being transferable when selling a car will make them a bucket load.

 

eg

You sell a car on the 15th of a month, you claim the remaining tax back except the month your in.

New person buys the car, then has to tax and pays for the whole month that we are in - even though we are now half way through.

 

Maybe if tax was bought per day it would be fairer.
