star this property answer text <p>As Robert Goodwill informed the House in a written answer on 10 February 2015 [223954], between 2010 and 2014 the real cost of motoring, including the purchase of a vehicle, decreased by 5%. The Government has contributed to this in a number of ways. The Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed in the 2014 Budget that Fuel Duty would be frozen to the end of this Parliament. The maximum MoT test fee has also been frozen for the duration of this Parliament. Last October, I announced that we would be reducing driving licence fees by up to 32% and that theory test fees would drop by 25%.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, various measures have been taken to reduce and simplify motorists’ paperwork, including abolishing the paper tax disc which should save businesses around £8m per year and motorists £5m per year; removing the insurance check at vehicle relicensing which should save motorists around £1m per year; and removing the requirement to make annual Statutory Off Road Notifications, with savings for private motorists estimated to be nearly £6m per year.</p><p> </p><p>By investing in the road network, including allocating around £1billion more for local roads maintenance, including on potholes, in this Parliament compared to the previous one and a further £6 billion of funding announced in December 2014, the Government has helped to make journeys smoother, safer and more reliable, saving motorists time and wear and tear on their vehicles.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
