'Tax it or lose it': DVLA urges drivers to pay VED with major car tax changes weeks away


In April, Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) is set to rise in line with inflation and will see the cost of owning a petrol or diesel vehicle rise.

Inflation hit 5.5 percent in January, with experts predicting it could rise to as high as eight percent by April.

The amount of VED, or car tax, a driver pays will depend on how old the car is and how environmentally friendly it is.

Electric vehicles will continue to pay nothing in VED for the first year, while all other car tax bands will increase.
