Many British drivers’ driving bills will rise this year as car tax increases and new Clean Air Zones are implemented in major UK cities.
How much will your car insurance costs increase?
Many drivers will see an increase in their driving bills in 2022 due to planned changes to Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) and the introduction of new Clean Air Zones in Greater Manchester and Bradford.
This is how much your car insurance will go up.
This spring, new vehicle excise taxes will be implemented, with increases in VED for both gasoline and diesel vehicles.
In April 2022, the Vehicle Excise Duty, also known as car tax, will increase.
In his Autumn Budget of October 2021, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the planned increase in VED, stating that the tax would be raised in line with inflation.
Your VED payments will increase as your vehicle becomes more pollutant.
The standard rate and the first-year rate are the two payments that make up VED.
The first-year rate, also known as a’showroom tax,’ is calculated using CO2 figures from the time the vehicle was manufactured.
The standard rate is the yearly renewal fee, which you must pay every year after that.
The standard rate will rise by £10 for many vehicles registered on or after April 1, 2017.
However, first-year rates are rising from £5 for vehicles emitting between 76 and 90 grams per kilometer to £120 for those emitting more than 255 grams per kilometer.
The full list of CO2 emissions-related VED increases can be found here.
Your standard rate will increase between £5 and £30 for cars registered on or after March 1, 2001.
Vehicles that run on alternative fuels, such as hybrids, bioethanol, and LPG, will be charged £155 per year.
From May 30, 2022, a Clean Air Zone will be implemented in Greater Manchester.
Fines for non-compliant vehicles will range between £7.50 and £60.
Personal automobiles and motorcycles are exempt from the charges.
If their vehicle is non-compliant, heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), buses, coaches, minibuses, motorcaravans, and private hire cars will all be fined.
Non-compliant buses, coaches, and HGVs will be charged a daily fee of £60.
Hackney cabs and other private hire vehicles will be charged £7.50, while vans and minibuses will be charged £10.
Motorhomes are required to do so.
