An easy saver

I’m taking my Spanish car (see above) in for a revision (service) tomorrow, in preparation for its ITV inspection (MOT) next week. It requires that because it’s four years old; the test certificate is valid for two years, and not until it is has been on the road for ten years, does it have to be done annually. That’s the European Union standard requirement. With the burden on motorists, and upon household budgets for those people, many of them, who cannot do without a car, reaching intolerable levels while fuel prices continue to rise and the government scratches its head trying to figure out how to make a tax regulator work, might it not be a good  idea for Britain to ease off on its regime of three year inspection, annually thereafter?

    My little old Rav4 is 12 this year and sails through it’s ITV every year. I don’t know what I will do when it gives up the ghost, but in the mean time I really enjoy it. Think the yearly check after ten years is a good thing, it costs approximately 40 euros, but you are then sure that you are not a danger to others or yourself.

    I will be happy if I have the Jeep in another six years. I would be happier if it was a nice BMW 3 series Sport coupe, white, auto with nice toys, but you can’t get two ******* dogs in the back.
