Car Tax Bands - 7 Seat Vehicles

Since March 2001 all VED bands are dependent upon a vehicles registration. This is the same for 7-seater cars. The Vehicles Banding is linked to the Vehicle Emissions figure.

The prices in the Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) Table below are for cars registered after March 1st 2001. Cars registered after March 1st 2001 follow the 01, 51 registration pattern.

VED rates alter slightly for alternative fuel cars such as Hybrid and Electric models. It is also slightly cheaper (if buying 6 monthly) to pay by direct debit. Monthly Direct Debit payments are available from bands D to M. Although paying monthly does add a few pounds it will help people to budget.
