Thieving bar stewards

This is beyond a joke now.
For the price of VED we should have billiard table smooth roads.
I feel it’s a form of victimisation when a car that was registered a few months earlier in cures a fraction of the VED of my car. I have owned it now for ten years when the difference was nowhere near what it is now.

Yep! I'm I the same boat. The joke is, that a newer 3.0 D4 can be lower VED, because apparently there is lower emissions. Unless the D4 does more MPG (which they don't) the emissions are the same or worse.

But there is a big difference, the newer D4 has AdBlue, which changes what comes out of the exhaust.

So under the current measurement of certain substances it's seen as less polluting.

A 4.4TDV8 FFRR from 2017 onwards is even less again than an AdBlue D4.
@£195pa, when the D4 with AB is @£395.
 Heaven doesn't want me, and hell is afraid I'll take over.

same boat for me also but i think its more of a way to get people to change out older cars for more efficient models that are cheaper to tax

seems to be the way of the world now to charge what they can get away with,i ride a triumph speed triple the tax on that now is £122 the d4 this year was £708 my d3 was £378 but i spend most of my time cycling as the roads are so blocked up now that its quicker to cycle the 3mls to work than drive there and as a result the triumph does about 100mls a year the d4 did less than 800mls last year and the wifes d3 did less than 6000mls last year

im hoping one day they will end car tax and add the amount to fuel that would suit me fine as the d4 was filled up on the 10/3/2023 and then refilled on the 3/3/2024 Laughing still i suppose its not going to wear out anytime soon Rolling Eyes oh and the d4 hasn't yet had the rate increase applied to the listed price
 please excuse any grammer/punctuation mistakes,i'm thick,thankyou

Could be worse, you could have swapped from one of the lower band D3's to a D4 at over £700. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

Or if you live in Ireland - my road tax on my MY14D4 is €1,250. Most here are registered as commercials paying €333 but are only 5 seaters. What is worse is the D4 with the 6 speed box on private tax is €2,250!

Early ones £415 now.

They changed the rules after 2017. You only pay the high tax for 6 years (if the original price was over £40K

buy a diesel they said, its cheaper they said, its better for the environment they said as diesel engines are more fuel efficient. we will even give loads of incentives to buy a diesel as petrol is so evil

HAHAHAHA GOT EM!!.... now lets tax them off the road and reap the cash



sadly we have no choice, just have to suck it up and try to recoup cash in other areas but I do miss my air suspension on all these green lanes... sorry I meant roads

Loving my new-old VW T2. Nil VED !!! No ULEZ either and historic insurance is dirt cheap, I've never run a vehicle so cheaply before. It puts my EV to shame.

I can’t see why in this day and age, why the DVLA upon buying or selling a vehicle, can’t easily work it out to the day rather than this month nonsense.

In all but a few instances, you’re double paying for a month. Multiply that by the number of transactions and it must run into the billions by now. No that’s what I call institutional fraud on an industrial scale.

^^ As soon as they brought in non-transferable tax I thought it was a money making scheme.

I was a bit surprised when I had to tax my early D3 over the weekend, £435 for 12 months, I remember when I first had it the price being around £245.
