Car tax band: How to work out your car's tax band ahead of changes


VED rates have increased in line with inflation since 2010.

How to work out your new VED band

VED comprises two parts. You will have to pay a one-off first-year rate in the 12 months from when your vehicle is initially registered.

After this period, you’ll pay a standard rate. For vehicles registered on or after April 1, 2017, this is currently £155, but it will rise to £165 from April 1, 2022.

Vehicles with a list price of over £40,000 when new will be required to pay an additional £355 annually on top of the standard rate for five years.

Your first payment of VED will depend on the amount of CO2 emissions your vehicle produces.
