So there has been a Budget, and with it a full-scale road fund licence revamp, which doesn’t kick in until 2017.

As usual, it’s a confusing slab of rules and regulations that leaves everyone reeling. The point of the Budget seems to be that if you want to buy or lease a car, do it now or next year. What about used cars, though?

Well, it doesn’t really matter too much, as everything stays the same - until 2017. At that point, previously environmentally friendly cars will become more expensive to tax. Indeed, the prestigious £40k eco-friendly car that you always promised yourself will actually cost an extra £310 a year to own from year two to year six.

No, I can’t fathom that out either, but it could certainly make any £40k car that isn’t particularly environmentally friendly just a bit cheaper to buy.
