If you drive an electric car and choose to pay your own road tax, you’ll need to start paying tax for this vehicle from 2025. If you use your disability exemption on your Scheme electric vehicle, we’ll arrange this for you, as normal – you will not need do or pay anything.
We are sorry, it looks like we have an issue!
We'll arrange for your car or WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle to be taxed each year, unless you've decided to pay tax privately or you live on the Isle of Man.
If you live in Great Britain or Northern Ireland
When you get your new car or WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle, it will already be taxed for the first year. We'll renew your tax for you each year, throughout your lease.
If you live on the Isle of Man
We'll tax your car or WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle for you for the first year. You're responsible for renewing the vehicle tax each year of your agreement.
Your government-funded mobility allowance entitles you to a free tax disc (exemption from vehicle excise duty) but we cannot get this for you.
Checking your tax details
You can check your car or WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle tax details online(opens in a new window). Just choose 'Check now' and enter the registration number and make of your car or WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
So you know, new tax details only show online about a week before your current tax is due to expire.
Or you can call the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) on 0300 790 6802.
If you're sent a Vehicle Registration Document (V5C) or Vehicle Licence Application (V11) from the DVLA, please call our customer services team on 0300 456 4566 as soon as possible, as this usually means we've not been able to tax your car or WAVWheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
If you decide to pay your own tax
Some people find it’s best to keep their disability exemption on a private vehicle and pay for their Scheme vehicle tax themselves. Let your dealer know when you apply or call our customer services team on 0300 456 4566 if you decide during your lease.
You can check the cost of taxing your vehicle privately, online at gov.uk(opens in a new window).
