It removes a layer of bureaucracy. It will increase new car registrations, increase Government V.A.T. and Corporation Tax and benefit the consumer.
'The New Car Order' was introduced by Stephen Byers when new cars were cheaper in some member states of the E. U. As a result of this order no a new car registered by a New Car dealer cannot be sold to a customer until 3 months after original registration. If the car is sold before 3 months the Dealer loses any bonus or incentive. New cars are no longer cheaper in the E. U. It therefore means that the U.K. consumer misses out on the ability to purchase nearly new cars at discounted prices. Furthermore no one monitors what is really going on. There are numerous ways this legislation can be bypassed.
