General Information


  1. An articulated vehicle (i.e. vehicle and semi-trailer) is regarded as a single vehicle and motor tax is payable on the basis of the unladen weight of the tractor unit plus the unladen weight of the heaviest semi-trailer which will be used at any time during the period of the licence. Additional duty is not otherwise payable in relation to the use of a vehicle to draw a trailer or side car.
  2. When calculating quarterly or half-yearly rates cent should always be disregarded.
  3. Arrears in excess of one month should be calculated by multiplying the arrears rate for one month by the number of months involved and ignoring the cent in the result.
