Can I tax a crew cab vehicle for private use?


Could you please tell me if I can buy a crew cab vehicle and tax it legally if I don't own a registered business? Will the tax office tax it for me without a big rigmarole?

Thank you.

Hi Shane,

You can indeed, though you'll need to tax it for private use, not commercial use. That means the annual motor tax rate goes by the engine size, not the CO2 emissions (and not the fixed commercial vehicle rate).

Just get in touch with your local motor tax office to tell them and it shouldn't be difficult.
