The road tax (also known as Vehicle Excise Duty or VED) for a motorhome in the United Kingdom depends on several factors.
- Weight-Based Tax: Motorhomes that weigh up to 3,500 kilograms (kg) fall into the Private/Light Goods (PLG) category. For PLG motorhomes, the road tax is calculated based on the car’s weight. The exact rates can vary, but there are several tax bands based on weight, with higher rates for heavier motorhomes.
- CO2-Based Tax: Some motorhomes, particularly larger or more luxury models, may have CO2 emissions ratings. In these cases, the road tax may also take CO2 emissions into account. Motorhomes with CO2 emissions are subject to the standard passenger car road tax rates based on their emissions level.
It’s worth noting that road tax rates can change over time, so it’s important to check with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) or visit their official website for the most up-to-date information on road tax rates specifically applicable to motorhomes.
Additionally, please keep in mind that this information applies to the United Kingdom, and road tax regulations and rates may vary in other countries. If you have specific inquiries about road tax for motorhomes in a different country, it’s best to consult the relevant local authorities or a qualified professional in that jurisdiction.
