There are many ways that this could have been tackled:
- Scrap VAT on cars
- Remove VAT from fuel.
- Reduce fuel duty.
- Waive the VAT for driving lessons.
This saving is less than the cost of a driving lesson, estimated by the www.moneysupermarket.com in 2013 to be £24.
It's less than the cost of a tank of fuel.
I'm not convinced the Government was that serious about helping young people with the cost of motoring. If they were, they'd have tried a bit harder.
