One of the major developments made by the government and the department of transportation is the imposition of new car tax rules on UK motorists. With effect from 1st April 2017, the rule would be applicable for vehicles bought and registered after this date and drivers need to pay more Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) than they are paying as of 31st March.
