Motorists will be charged to use Britain's first private motorway when it opens in January. Surely any right-minded business would rather pay £3 to save the time spent in traffic jams. So you are now having to pay to use a motorway that was paid for by private money and no taxpayers' money , fine

Usefully, Caura has in-app notification functionality to remind motorists about upcoming bills or charges.

Such ‘push notifications’ could help tackle 1 in 4 MOTs that are conducted late, say the developers.

Investor Rob Wilmot said the app’s digital infrastructure was “desperately needed in today’s fractured and outdated ecosystem.

“The team has done a remarkable job bringing together an entire industry, integrating private and public companies, and government bodies, with proprietary technology into a beautiful and simple-to-use app.”

Caura can even manage multiple registered vehicles, useful for private motorists with several cars, as well as company car fleet managers.

How does Caura work?

Once installed and set up, motorists simply enter their car’s registration number.

This then automatically displays the vehicle’s current VED road tax, MOT and car insurance renewal dates.

Owners can also, from the app’s home screen, directly pay for parking, congestion charges and toll roads for their vehicle.

This “minimises admin and mitigates penalty fines”.

Caura estimates that penalties associated with late or incorrect motoring expenses cost car owners £2bn a year.
