Two types of car owners are free from taxes:
• Those who own band A car
• Those who own a brand new car in band B to D.
However, it is notable that brand new car owners are free from taxes only in their first year of registration. Once their car is more than one-year-old, they have to pay regular taxes.
Also, you are also free from car taxes if you come under following two categories:
• The owner of historical vehicles (made before 1974).
• If you have a serious disability.
Since you are aware of the band system of VED, let us tell you how much tax you have to pay according to band distribution. The rate depends upon the CO2 emission as well the fuel type of the car. It is zero for band A cars like Ford Fiesta; however, it may elevate up to 1,100 euros for CO2 emitting cars such as Bentley Flying Spur for the first year. Car owners have to pay taxes according to the following way:
• Band A to G: 0 to 180 euro with CO2 emission ranging from less than 100 to 165g/km.
