Do I need to pay vehicle tax?

Vehicles that are driven or parked on public roads need to be taxed. If the vehicle is to be kept off the road, then it must be declared SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification). SORN lasts for 12 months, and must be renewed if the vehicle is to continue being kept off road.

How much does vehicle tax cost?

The amount of tax due on a vehicle will vary according to the type of vehicle, engine size and CO2 emissions (CO2 only applies to cars registered after 1st March 2001). Each vehicle is allocated a tax band based on engine emissions. Use the vehicle tax rate tables here to help you find the cost of tax on your vehicle.
