Because you are giving them access to your bank account. And then the b******s charge extra if you use a credit card

Only if it's a business credit card. Personal ones have no surcharge
(unless that law vanished with Brexit ?)

The DVLA did used to charge extra if you paid by credit card. But not by
debit card. I think that has gone now.

Did wonder if credit cards has reduced their fees to the seller? With
Covid, many places that once would only take cash for a small amount now
take them.

Many government websites (HMRC as an example) now won't take credit and
debit card payment unless it's a business card, where they can still
apply a surcharge.

Maybe, but I recently (a couple of weeks ago) paid road tax, and for a
new passport with my credit card.

Just got mine - 600 for a diesel Land Rover Defender. If I'd kept my
petrol 4 litre V8 doing about 11mpg it would have been about 250.
Roll on road pricing, I do less than 6k miles pa in it.

If you don't like cc charges just try paying for something by bitcoin.
The fees appear from nowhere, the value is up and down like a yoyo and
you are working to 8 places after the decimal point so you really have
no concept of the value of the lower places.

Of course 4x4 pickups are taxed as a commercial vehicle, currently a
flat rate.
