    Road Tax gone up again

    Road Tax gone up again-img_20190306_190053.jpg

    Could be worse I could be taxed on emmisions. I'm taxed on any engine size greater than 1.3l

    £255 seems like a big increase from last year, can't recall what it was, thought it was £225.

    My kia was meant to be free tax as emmisions was under 95. On delivery of the car it was reclassified as around 102. So having to pay £20 a year road tax.

    Teslas are something like £400 Road tax a year due to being an electric car of greater than £40k. I think road tax should be for repairing roads, and all cars including electric cars of any value should contribute towards the roads. Electric cars damage the roads as much as any other car.

    This is typical of our government unfortunately, they will move the goalpost if it means making more money.
    I have touched on the unfairness of our car tax system in a previous thread. If we're talking about emissions and the upkeep of roads (which is what it's all about), for someone who drives to the shops a couple of times a week and a rep doing 50k a year to both be paying the same is fundamentally unfair. One will inevitability cause more pollution and damage than the other. They should just have a basic tax charge to cover admin costs and stick the rest on fuel. That would be fairer to the lower mileage motorists... and would be better for us classic car owners

    Very true will,

    Lots of cars are being traded in very cheap sitting on the for corts up for sale but check the road tax on the car it,s scarey and What happens to the scrap age cars sit in the field going rusty ,
    Pot hole repairs are a joke repair the same holes time and time again do it properly the 1st time you wouldn't need to return as this adds to the cost,
    There is a big patch of pot holes up the road about 10mm Sq they keep repairing each time the holes are bigger cut the section out repair complete area in one go job done,
