How car tax is calculated

For cars registered before 01 March 2001, car tax is charged according to engine size as measured in cubic centimeters or 'cc'. There is one rate for engines up to 1549cc and one for 1550cc and over.

For cars registered from 01 March 2001 to 23 March 2006 (inclusive), car tax rates are based on eleven car tax bands (A to K), each band being defined by a range of tailpipe CO2 emissions as measured on the official test.

For cars registered from 24 March 2006, car tax rates are based on thirteen car tax bands (A to M), each band being defined by a range of tailpipe CO2 emissions as measured on the official test.

See car tax bands 2014/15 section for details of the current rates or cars by tax band to find a list of vehicles available in each tax band.
