The Weekly Roundup

The cost of applying for your first UK driving licence, and renewing it at the required 10-year intervals, is set to fall by up to 32% under new Government plans which could save drivers £18m a year. The DVLA is currently reviewing its whole fee structure and this consultation is only the first phase as new digital technology makes it cheaper to deliver its services.

Slow caravans, lost drivers and playing loud music with the windows down are just a few examples of what irritates us Brits about driving in the summer, according to a poll by the AA. But can you guess which summer bugbear was voted the most annoying?
