VED road tax: how does it work and how much will it cost me?

From 1st April 2020, a more accurate way of testing vehicle CO2 emissions will be introduced for all new vehicles.

The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) is a new way of measuring a vehicle’s fuel consumption, range and CO2 emissions.

The previous NEDC  testing procedure was originally developed in the 1990s and has now been superseded. The new testing procedure has been designed to better reflect real driving conditions, to give a more accurate view of a vehicle’s emissions and fuel economy. This change takes effect from 1st April 2020 for VED (Vehicle Excise Duty or Road Tax) and 6th April for Benefit in Kind on Company Car Tax. Because the WLTP test is more stringent, the results are more realistic and this could mean an increase in road tax for your new car.
