What is a Road Tax?
To be able legally drive your car on British roads you must purchase a Road Tax. Its price depends on engine capacity or fuel type and CO2 emissions.
For the cars registered before 1st March 2001, Road Tax tariff rate is dependent on engine size of the vehicle. For the cars registered after 1st March 2001, Road Tax tariff depends on fuel type and CO2 emissions. If this information is not available, Road Tax tariff will be calculated by means of old system.
In certain circumstances there is no need to pay Road Tax
If you have a car which isn't in use on roads, you don't need to pay Road Tax. If this is the case, your car has to be registered as SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification).
Register your car as SORN if your car isn't used on roads and is parked:
- in a garage
- in a driveway
- on a private land
Then you are not obliged to pay Road Tax. If you start using your car on roads again, then you have to tax it.
If you had already paid your Road Tax for 6 or 12 months in advance, and then you registered it as SORN, the cost of road Tax for the remaining months will be reimbursed to you.
