Time for the annual road tax hike

Recommended Posts

You refer to the "The DoI insists the changes are needed to generate income to maintain the highways network, as well as supporting local businesses and helping the environment." this bit I presume?

 

Yeah, it's going to go up every year and they'll use "environment" as an excuse every time.

Wankers.

 

If they are going to continue to increase the price then they should offer a way to pay by direct debit. Having to stump up £200 or so in one go can be difficult for a lot of people.

Tarne - there hasn't been an increase since 2015

 

Teapot - you can pay by credit card and then take as long as you like to pay it off.

Not if you don't have a credit card.

The answer is then - go and get one.

 

Direct debit is administratively expensive. If you want to pay by instalments do so, but don't expect the rest of us to cover the admin costs of your credit, which is how DD would work.

 

If you have budgeted for a car then you must also budget for tax, insurance, fuel etc. If you haven't budgeted properly then perhaps its time to catch a bus.

Or just get a smaller car. My road tax is peanuts, even as a doley I can afford a car.

I see the top two categories of most polluting gas guzzlers with highest co2 emissions are getting a substantial reduction.

Some people have this type of vehicle because they need it not because they are privilaged.

 

My 4 x 4 is almost £600 a year to tax - more than a LGV
