Do mine annually, or for at least 6 months.
2014 Fiat Ducato Motorhome £165 (because it's over 3.5 tonnes so costs less than the previous one that was less than 3.5 tonnes - strange eh?)
2012 Seat Ibiza £30 a year.
2005 C3 £150 (Mrs BMH's pride)
1978 MGB

Pressed the wrong button on this stupid Microshite phone.

Should say MGB £165 for 6 months and I've just SORN the 1991 HiAce which cost the same for 6 months.

I bought an XC90 D5 with the wrong build date 07/early 08, so £500 a year. Built a month later and it'd be down to £265 or whatever

At least he gets a badge to brag about..
It's down to it being registered as a proper 7 seater from new,and not a dodgy "commercial"
Edit. can't work those dates though....old pic?

I just paid £305* for the Omega and just got the bill for £245* for the MX5 plus there is the BINI at £145* (to be gifted to our daughter) and looks like I'm getting my wife a Vomit Puke erm Juke.  What will that be? about £150 ?

* I think that's right *

So that's erm.......too much about £850 or £16 a week.  or £2.33 a day (One Costa coffee)

 

What is this monthly direct debit thing ? Does it work out cheaper ?  I pay each in one instalment.

I hadn't seen a real Discovery 4 here at all; they're all 5 seat 'crew cabs' with the €333 tax (for as long as that lasts)

Reckon the one with 2.5k tax would be unsaleable by 5 years old; and would end up getting exported or crew cabbed anyhoo

When I left Portugal in 2009 road tax there was 27 euros a year. Here it was about £200. That hurt. Now £245 ish.

 

Brazil it doesn't exist, or Mot's.

I've known this for a while, but those in the Republic of Ireland get a right good kicking car tax-wise. What I don't understand is why large engined sheds in the RoI aren't totally worthless. Living in Northern Ireland I've compared prices and there's little difference or they are slightly more expensive. I appreciate the pound has weakened, but still.

 

Anyway, for the record:

 

'01 MB CLK 230K Cab - £305;

'82 Land Rover Series 3 - Sorn, but would be £245;

'70 Jag XJ6 - Sorn, but historic so nowt.

 

My Mum's Merc comes in at £535.

It's just allows you to spread the cost over 12 months rather than paying all in one go. It doesn't work out cheaper but it is only 5% more expensive. So for a whole year it costs an extra £12.25 for a big engine pre 2001 car which I feel is worth it for the convenience factor.

Nail on head. Should be added to fuel duty so its representative of use.

But then theyd make less money......

Yeah, here the plate to register the vehicle is about $15 a year and then they nail about 40% on fuel to pay for the roads.
