UK car registrations drop by 20% in September

The UK car new market fell by 20.5% in September year-on-year, according to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).The sharp decline is due to the ongoing impact of the WLTP emissions regulations that were introduced on 1 September.

Many insurance companies ­automatically renew policies as standard these days, apparently for ­customer convenience. With this being the case, some people see their insurer’s logo on the envelope and simply file it in the top drawer. But things can get messy if you do not know your policy’s proper terms and conditions.- Read more here.

MoT rules have now changed – and if you’re not careful it could cost you. For those off to the mechanic, here are your rights, as explained by our lawyer. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been looking into vehicle repairs and the shocking practices adopted by not only dodgy back street mechanics, but also mainstream car dealerships.

The UK is testing signs that detect when phones are used in cars

Four signs are being trialled in Norfolk. They flash when a phone signal is detected around a car – but can’t tell who is using the phone.
