Vehicle excise duty (VED) is the formal name for road tax. A duty is a specific tax placed on a good or service such as a vehicle.

The Government provides vehicle tax rates tables which set out the cost of taxing all vehicles. This includes cars and vehicles registered before 1 April 2017 and cars registered between 1 March 2001 and 31 March 2017.
Road tax rates usually change annually on 1st April every year. Currently zero emission cars and vans are exempt from paying road tax because they emit no carbon at the tailpipe. But from 2025 the Government has plans to start charging a low rate of tax in the first year of registration for zero emission cars and vans and a standard rate every year after.
The Government does provide a check if a vehicle is taxed service. This will tell you if a vehicle is taxed or not. But it doesn’t tell you how much tax is due or provide other useful information about the vehicle.
