    Very odd!

    Taken from the Directgov site.

    The cost of vehicle tax for cars, motorcycles, light goods vehicles and trade licences : Directgov - Motoring

    Cars registered before 1 March 2001 (based on engine size)

    Private/light goods (TC11)

    Engine size (cc)

    12 months rate

    Not over 1549cc £130.00
    Over 1549cc £215.00

    6 months rate

    Not over 1549cc £71.50
    Over 1549cc £118.25
    Unless your car is an import perhaps?

    In that case, late registered Y plates are taxed by emissions then.

    This in my view balances it out for everyone, as an average person doing say 10,000 miles per year is doing far less damage to the roads that someone doing 30,000 miles per year.

    Just a thought.........
    Your logic is perfect, but unfortunately the world is not. It's not "road tax", but "Vehicle Excise Duty". Years and years ago, before even I was born, it was called Road Fund Licence, and that's precisely what it was, a way of raising a fund to pay for the build and upkeep of the road network. The money raised was hypothecated; that is, ring-fenced for the one specific purpose. Everyone (well, pretty most everyone) was happy to pay it, because they knew what it was going towards, but that link was done away with long ago.

    It will say on your V5 what band it is for emissions, then you can check it on dvla site and find cost.
