New driving laws are being introduced into the UK in 2019. Here is how the new rules and regulations will affect you.

MOT rules

The MOT rules are set to change again in 2019, following the alteration to the rules that occurred in 2018.

There have been proposals to adjust the MOT test rules to accommodate cars that have outstanding recalls against them.

Car tax

Car tax rates are increasing again in 2019, marking the third consecutive year they have done so in the UK.

Rates for Vehicle Excise Duty will increase in line with inflation this year. The announcement was quietly made in the Autumn Budget 2018.

Highway Code

The Highway Code is set to be altered to accommodate a new rule relating to passing cyclists.

Under the new rules, there must be at least 1.5-metres (4ft 11 inches) between the driver and the cyclist when overtaking. Drivers that feel to leave this sufficient gap will be fined £100.
