Recommended Posts

Damn, why is road tax so much these days? Did you know that the majority of it doesn't even go on the roads?

Got an interesting point on this.

I have a 1.8 Avensis as does my Dad - mine is 2001 and his is a year newer. They are exactly the same except his is automatic.

He pays more road tax than me ! His auto just pushes the emissions into the next bracket for payment.

I'm not sure when the emissions level is used to determine tax payable - I think with older cars it's just purely on engine size (?)

In my experience the letter has come later in the month (last 2 weeks or the month), so give it at least another week before worrying. Last time I paid for tax I never got a letter and went to the post office with all my 'bits'.

This is my theory: I reckon that you only get a letter if you taxed the car last time it was paid, as every time I have bought a new car I have never received a letter the first time my tax was due, but I have every time after that.
