Vehicle Duty Tax Bands 2013 & 2014

To work out how much vehicle excise duty (commonly referred to as car tax or road tax) you will pay for your car from 1 April 2013, you need to know how much CO2 it emits.

You can find this on your vehicle’s V5C registration certificate (log book) or new keeper details section (V5C/2).
