Govt addresses motoring red tape

Various areas of unnecessary motoring legislation are being changed in order to reduce the burden on drivers, the government has announced.

Transport secretary Justine Greening explained that many regulations are over-complicated, meaning they should be scrapped entirely or just simplified.

Among them is the need to register for a Statutory Off Road Notification or SORN on a yearly basis, which will no longer be the case.

Furthermore, drivers of approved used cars and other vehicles will no longer have to hold on to a motor insurance certificate, making it easier for them to make tax applications online.

As cross-checks are made between the DVLA and the Motor Insurance Database, it is now possible to identify motorists who are driving vehicles without taking out the necessary cover.

Ms Greening added: "Reducing the number of rules and regulations in our life is absolutely vital to removing barriers to economic growth and increasing individual freedoms."ADNFCR-2576-ID-801242107-ADNFCR
