Vehicles Exempt From Vehicle Tax.

A friend of mine has need for a second car (Small City type Car) and being disabled already has NIL TAX on the tow car.

 

Can someone confirm if tax has to be paid on a second vehicle?

Small vehicles are zero rated under 100gms CO2 . Disability vehicles still pay road fund licence and insurance but is paid as part of the scheme I think .

I would have thought that you can only claim once for vehicle tax exemption due to disability.

 

However, as others have said, there are now loads of cars on the market with less than 100g/km emissions and hence no tax.

These are some of the best and there are some quite large cars in there

The car he is buying is £30 per annum.

 

The question is when any vehicle is bought for disabled use it is allowed zero VED.

 

I can't find any rule preventing a second car from being applied for.

It does say it must be registered in the disabled persons name and must be only for their personal use. Obviously you can't use two cars at the same time.

Provided both vehicles are for the EXCLUSIVE USE of the disabled person then I believe you may be correct. I'm sure the DVLA could confirm if he calls them.

 

SWMBO has a BB and we could exempt our vehicle @ £260 PA but then I should not use the car to go out for MY purposes alone. .. which I very occasionally do.

 

Many people, of course ignore this (or have no choice but to with Motability vehicles where they are invariably taxed as exempt)...

My mum is registered disabled and does not pay any RFL and the car is registered in my dads name, so not sure how you come to that and they are not in any "scheme"

That is a good suggestion and I will pass that info on to him. .......

Our Freelander2 is registered in my name, but gets a free Road fund Disc as Lizzie has. Blue badge. If I use it without Lizzie in the vehicle I always make sure I have a reason for driving it like collecting her prescription or shopping for her!

you can only claim exemption on one vehicle at a time / fact, ie if you have a mobility car ( they are exempt from rfl ) you can not get rfl free on a second car, jim

I am unable to find any rule where a it says only one vehicle allowed.

 

eg.

Vehicle tax exemption Eligibility

You can apply for exemption from paying vehicle tax if you get the:

The vehicle must be registered in the disabled person’s name or their nominated driver’s name. It must only be used for the disabled person’s personal needs. It can’t be used by the nominated driver for their own personal use.

My dad is disabled, & parents have 2 cars, but only 1 can be RFL exempt. If you have a motability car, then that is the one that will be exempt, any second car will have to have normal RFL - they looked into this with DVLA when he was registered as disabled. What they do is use the exemption on the vehicle which would have the higher RFL - both cars are registered in his name, neither are motability.

Thanks all for the feedback. ..... I will pass it on to my friend. ......... :)

 

Found the PDF on nidirect. ............

 

eg
7. General Information
Exemption from vehicle tax for disabled people can only be claimed for one vehicle at a time. You must tax any other vehicle in an appropriate tax class.
Case closed. ........ :)

That does seem fair IMHO, it would be grossly unfair if it was allowed for more than one vehicle. The exemption is there to improve the mobility of disabled people and rightly so but any additional vehicles it would be plain greedy.

just seen this thread, but thought the obvious answer would be to ask - they can only say no :blink:
