Martin Lewis Money Saving Expert: Do you need to pay the TV licence? Check here

Martin Lewis, 48, has taken to his social media to shed light on the confusing issue of the TV licence for Britons. In a tweet yesterday he cleared up the murky issue.

However, Martin replied in the contrary, to their shock. They added: “Never knew that. I thought it was to fund the BBC! In essence it’s a tax on watching tv.”

Martin replied: “Indeed thats why it is called the TV licence not the BBC licence.”

What is the TV licence fee?

From April 2019 the annual television licence fee increased from £150.50 to £154.50.

It is possible to pay this in a direct debit each month, which works out as £12.88 a month.

For a black and white TV the licence costs £52 a year.

Last night on The Martin Lewis Money Show, the expert revealed how to get cheaper car insurance.

“Cutting car insurance cost is less about common sense and more about small changes in your behaviour, that can bring big price swing,” he said on the programme.

“These days, you have to have [car] insurance if you have a car, the only time you don’t need that is if you have a SORN,” he revealed.

A SORN is used to tell the DVLA that your car isn’t parked or being used on public roads.

Martin revealed that the DVLA has done that in order to keep a record of uninsured drivers.
