How car tax is calculated

For cars registered since 01 March 2001, car tax rates are based on thirteen car tax bands (A to M), each band being defined by tailpipe CO2 emissions as measured on the official test.

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.

See the car tax bands 2016/17 section for details of the current rates or cars by tax band to find a list of vehicles available in each tax band.

Using the car tax calculator

The NGC car tax calculator enables you to quantify the Vehicle Excise Duty payable for new and used vehicles in 2016/17. First select whether you would like to search for a new or used car and then use the drop-downs provided to narrow your search by make, model and fuel / engine size before selecting the exact model. The results will show you the official tailpipe CO2 emissions, the car tax band and the first year and standard annual road tax payable for 2016/17.
