    Very odd!

    Taken from the Directgov site.

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

    Unless your car is an import perhaps?

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

    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.
