With the current price of cars as they are, and all the stupid lease deals, it will push most cars over 50k shortly anyway. I wouldn't mind except the 'Road Tax' is a general tax, very little to do with roads, or at least not round here anyway. They are a mess to say the least. RIP cheap motoring

Erm, you still pay it, it's just included in the lease cost!

Doesn't your lease cost include the road tax (I know, I know: VED)? They usually do.

If not, didn't it occur to you to check how much it would be?

Slightly O/T, but a while back there was a rule that said if your car had a capacity greater than 3.5l and registered after March? 2005 then you paid a higher VED (£585?) than if it was registered before that date. Has that gone out of the window now? Couldn't find it on the Gov website.

#17 - It was based on CO2 emissions not engine size and still applies.  https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-rate-tables/rates-for-cars-registered-on-or-after-1-march-2001

The CO2 based first year rate on my GR Yaris is £895, all the ones getting flipped only get refunded the amount of the second year onwards tax.

Personally I'd abolish the luxury car tax and slap it all on caravans. Hehe
