Cars registered on or after 1 March 2001 (based on fuel type and CO2 emissions)

The rates shown only apply to cars that have been type approved in category M1 and registered on the basis of CO2 emissions measured in grams per kilometre (g/km) driven. These details are shown on the registration certificate (V5C).

From 1 May 2009, Vehicle tax rates for cars registered on or after 1 March 2001 are split into 13 bands depending on CO2 emissions. The amount you’ll pay depends on which band your car is in. The lower a car’s emissions, the lower the vehicle tax payable on it.

These bands and rates apply to all tax discs bought from 1 May 2009 onwards.

Showroom Tax

New cars

If you buy a new car after April 1, 2010, you’ll have to pay a one-off rate for the first year – or ‘showroom tax’ – based on CO2 emissions.

New cars which emit less than 130g/km of CO2 will be exempt from car tax for the first year, but more polluting cars will have higher fees. For example it’ll cost £950 to tax a vehicle which emits more than 255g/km for the first year, then £435 each year thereafter.

The price of tax for new cars will be revised to the following:
