I won't ever buy a car that's over 40k brand new so that's all good

Interesting that no one has mentioned that road tax is now being ring-fenced and being put back into the road network...

I don't even know what my tax is, just that it goes out of my account each month

Or he's one of those nutters who manages to rack up 32k of credit card debt by not paying attention to what they're buying.

Having 4 vehicles and paying just over 1k a year in Tax isnt bad in my eyes Still too much for my liking especially when the megane has only been on the road about 7 days this year!


505.00 for the Discovery

180.00 for the Abarth

265.00 for the Megane

130.00 for the van

I'm just not bothered how much road tax I pay. It wouldn't influence my decision to buy a car, I know a car is a luxury so don't complain about the costs.

I hate paying for 6 months if I'm keeping the car for longer as you end up paying more!

Indeed. I just whack 12 months on everytime. You claim it back when you sell it anyway so the most you'll lose is a month probably.

I'd be screwed you bastard

The 20 a year road tax on my Focus was one of the factors when i was looking for a new car.

I've never understood roadtax, what pisses me off is the cost of taxing the Corsa when its on a 3000m limit insurance policy and only does around 2500m yearly, yet my Zafira does 40,000m a year and look at the difference in price!! I know they'll never take it into consideration, but the amount of time the Corsa see's the roads - which are in shit condition and always make a mess of the car - I should be paying a fraction of what I do, my insurance on the Corsa is litrally 2/3rds the cost of the tax!!

Corsa 1.6 16v 241
Zafira 1.9 CDTI 189
DS3 1.6 HDI 30

Go figure

Be careful what you wish for!

While blackbox/tracked taxation would be more 'fair' it would also mean instant speeding fines/bans and no doubt the insurance companies would all get on the band waggon!

if that stops cyclists being ran over by lunatics in a 4 wheel death machine, then so be it. i can honestly say i have no idea when the last time i ever "needed" to go faster than the speed limits of the road.
