Did you know? Road tax is changing

New road tax rates are changing and from 1 st April 2017, all cars registered will fall under thirteen bands in year one (as shown in the table below). From year two onwards three new bands will be in place: these are zero emissions, standard and premium. These bands and the cost to you are governed by the CO 2 emissions omitted from your vehicles. We’ve highlighted the estimated costs for each bracket for you to cross-reference against if you are considering buying a new car from April 2017 onwards.

From year two onwards, the bands change to just three with cars emitting 0g/km of CO2 being exempt, and with standard cars paying £140 a year. Cars that cost more than £40,000 have to pay a £310 premium on top of this for the next five years of the car’s life.

These changes only apply to cars registered on or after 1st April 2017, so current cars or future cars registered before this date will continue operating under the existing system we’re all familiar with.
