British motorists spend an average £695 a year keeping their cars on the road – one of the highest figures in the world for servicing and repairs. And it is set to spark a jobs boom with 40,000 new jobs predicted over the next six years as drivers spend even more on servicing their cherished vehicles.

On average, Britons spend £74 – or 12% per head above the global average of £621 per vehicle. And it means UK drivers collectively spend £21.1billion, says a report by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
