Car tax checker

Find out the tax status of a vehicle

Car tax checks explained

Our road tax checker tool will tell you if a vehicle has up-to-date tax or if it’s registered as off the road (SORN). If the vehicle has valid tax, our checker will tell you when it expires Footnote [1].

In the UK, you must pay Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), known as car tax or road tax, on all vehicles driven or kept on a public road. It’s illegal to drive a vehicle that doesn’t have valid road tax unless it's exempt.

For more information see the FAQs below or our car tax guide.
