Access the Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) calculator

The VRT calculator service allows you to estimate the VRT due on a car, small commercial vehicle or motorcycle. The service can also be used to estimate any repayment of VRT that may be due when you export a car.

Please note that this calculator cannot be used for:

  • models that have not been presented previously for valuation
  • models that require special research to value. These include motor caravans, classic and collectable vehicles and certain prestige marques
  • large commercial vehicles, agricultural tractors, coaches and other large vehicles as these are generally liable to a fixed VRT charge
  • Value-Added Tax (VAT) on new means of transport. For VAT purposes, most motor vehicles are a new means of transport when a vehicle is less than 6 months old OR has travelled less than 6,000km.
