Driving licence fees to be slashed
From the 31st October, driving licence fees will be slashed up to 32%, the government has announced.
Under these new rules the cost of a provisional licence will now be £34 from £50 and the reduced cost for an online application for a 10 year licence will be £14 from £20.
We'll also be seeing the cost of a tachograph reduced to £32 from £38. These are used by businesses to
stalk record how far their staff are driving.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander said the move was designed to "give savings back to the taxpayer".
Personal thanks from me, Danny. Just another 9 years and 3 months until I can look forward to that £6 "saving".
