When do WLTP emissions figures kick in?


When do the new WLTP figures kick in for VRT and road tax purposes?

Hi Pat,

Effectively, they’ll have to kick in either on the day after the Budget in October, or on the 1st of January. After that date, the old NEDC figures will no longer be included on a car’s Certificate of Conformity, so can’t be used anymore. The problem now is trying to find out ahead of time how the various government departments fiddle with the tax bands to make sure that people aren’t put to an unfair financial burden by the move to WLTP (as mandated by the EU).
