Don't know if you guys are aware but the road fund license hike that I thought was being put on hold came into operation today for cars registered on or after the 1st March 2001. That means that our GTA's now cost £405 to tax for a year, or £222.75 for 6 months!! Nobody that I have spoken to today was aware this was going to happen as there was no mention of it in the recent budget. I would not have known myself but I am a car salesman and I was taxing a used car for a customer at the local post office and heard various people saying that they did not have enough money on them to tax their car. I probed a little further and got a copy of the new tax rates from the post master. I for one am really furious at this, especially as we were lead to believe that this hike was put on hold. Yet another example of the bloody government ripping us off! I don't know whu I bother to work hard to try to afford the odd luxuary when they just use it as an excuse to bleed you dry.
