New vehicle tax rates from 1 April 2017

The way vehicle tax is calculated will change for cars that are first registered with DVLA from 1 April 2017.

The change won’t affect any vehicles registered before April.

The rates explained

Vehicle tax for the first year is based on CO2 emissions.

 CO2 emissions (g/km)   Petrol (TC48) and diesel cars (TC49) 
 0   £0
 1 - 50    £10 
 51 - 75    £25 
 76 - 90    £100 
 91 - 100    £120 
 101 - 110   £140 
 111 - 130   £160 
 131 - 150    £200 
 151 - 170    £500   
 171 - 190    £800 
 191 - 225    £1,200 
 226 - 255    £1,700 
 Over 255    £2,000 


After the first year, the amount you pay each year depends on the type of fuel the vehicle uses. 

 Electric vehicle    Petrol or diesel  
 £0   £140


New vehicles with a list price of more than £40,000

If a vehicle has a list price (the published price before any discounts) of more than £40,000, the rate of tax is based on CO2 for the first year (as table above).

After the first year, the rate depends on the type of vehicle (petrol, diesel, or zero emissions) and an additional rate of £310 a year for the next 5 years.

 Fuel type    Standard annual rate    Additional rate   Total annual payment 
 Electric   £0  £310  £310
 Petrol or diesel   £140  £310   £440


After those 5 years, the vehicle will then be taxed at one of the standard rates (£140 or £0, depending on vehicle type).
