New driving law changes for June – from Tesco Clubcard rules to Clean Air Zones

In recent months, we've seen many motoring changes come to the roads.

Recently, drivers were told to check the expansion of London's Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) which was coming.

And every year there's always changes to speed limits, as well as adjustments to fuel duty.

Some are nationwide but others are area specific so it's important to take note.

Now with June right around the corner, Brits should be wary of new changes on the road next month.

From Tesco Clubcard changes to fuel rates, here are four things to keep an eye from tomorrow (June 1).

Fuel rates

From June 1, HM Revenue and Customs will cut diesel rates for company car users.

This marks the second change to the advisory fuel rates (AFRs).

The AFR for diesel vehicles will be 12p (for engines with 1,600cc or less), 14p (1,601cc to 2,000cc) and 18p (over 2,000cc).

New Low Emission Zone

On June 1 Glasgow will see its Low Emission Zone begin fining motorists for driving in the city centre in a bid to slash emissions.

All vehicles driving in the LEZ must meet certain emissions standards or face a penalty charge.

Generally, petrol vehicles registered from 2006 onwards and diesel vehicles registered after September 2015 will escape the charges.

Non-compliant cars will be hit with a £60 charge.

Councillor Angus Millar, city convener for climate and transport, said it was an "important milestone" to reduce air pollution rates.

Tesco Clubcard fuel changes

From June 14, the Clubcard will be changing its criteria to save on fuel prices.

Currently when filling up at a Tesco fuel station, drivers receive point on their Clubcard for every £2 spent on petrol or diesel.

But in a few weeks, it'll be one point for every two litres of petrol or diesel motorists purchase at the pumps.

MOT consultation

The Department for Transport (DfT) launched a public consultation on January 18 for MOT tests.

It looked at whether the date of the first MOT should be moved from three years to four years.

Proposals were put forward in a bid to help motorists save money, with one year delay for new cars.

The consultation ended on March 22, with the DfT expected to respond in late June.
