When I bought mine a few months ago I had no idea what it would cost until I contacted the DVLA...
They could be overcharging me but i'm not sure i would know :ROFLMAO:
Of you really want to know.....do an HPI check. When I checked the one I'm buying the rate came up.

That's what mine cost's, I think I was kidding myself into thinking it would be cheaper...
By the sounds of it, it could be worse :)

Mine is £614 when paid monthly too. A 2006 Caravelle SE registered 1st August, with the 2.5 130 BNZ engine. On the V5 it states 227g/km which is two grams over the threshold for the lower tax bracket...

Now you've got the same engine as me yet you're in a much higher bracket!
Someone's got to be smoking something to get these figures! Probably a game of roulette or something!

Totally agree, the grams per km measurement seem to be generally affected by vehicle weight, but looking at various Caravelle's, their figures vary so much. Mine is a manual SE, but I'm sure I've seen post 2006 Executive autos, which would technically be heavier in the lower tax bracket...

2011 T5.1 CAAC 2.0 TDI T30 = £265 for 12 months

I taxed mine on Monday, via their website, are you sure yours is reflective of current pricing?


So last year mine was £265! every year everything is going up, and the state of the roads are going down!

By the looks.of it, its a lucky dip with what we get charged!

It is ridiculous, I could have looked for an older Caravelle (or a T5.1) to avoid it but this one ticked all the boxes for me so chose to accept it.
My main concern is what happens long term, if and when they start to penalise 'old Diesels' more...

I use this simple app to quickly check VED rates... Vehicle Smart. It gives the rates, MOT and mileage history, basic vehicle info, links to other motoring sources and for the princely sum of 99pence, an expanded list of specific vehicle details, otherwise totally free.

That's the trouble with the DVLA, as they are the only company they can basically charge whatever they like and we all just have to bend over and take it.

The diesel fiasco bugs me because it's the government's fault. Most vehicles were petrol powered until they came up with the idea that diesel was better, then they advised/pushed all the car makers into fitting diesel engines instead and to make them more desirable. Hense them nearly all becoming turbo charged.

Now they've discovered that the fumes from diesels are 50 times more poisonous than petrol engines.

So it's a U turn and we get shafted financially for running diesels.

In years to come it'll be a choice of either run an electric vehicle or use a combustion engine but pay extortionate ved, insurance, mot, fuel prices, plus get charged for every mile driven including extra motorway and town charges.

I'd rather walk than drive electric.
