Cars registered after 1 March 2001
Car tax rates for cars registered after February 2001 are split into 13 bands, each designated a letter A-M. You pay according to your CO2 emissions. See the road tax chart below for a breakdown on the bands and rates.
CO2 Over 225g/km and registered before 23 March 2006
Cars registered before 23 March 2006 with a CO2 emissions level of over 225g/km are not placed in the L or M bands, but into band K. So if your car was registered before that date and has CO2 emissions of over 200 g/km - you know it will fall into tax band K.
