Fewer vehicles to face increased VED fee after HGV Road User Charge review

  • 18 July 2013
  • By Christopher Walton

The number of LGVs that will have to pay higher rates of VED following the introduction of HGV Road User Levy is to fall as a result of a review by the Department for Transport.

Roads minister Stephen Hammond [pictured] said today that the DfT had spotted an error in the data determining the VED bands of some rigids post 1 April 2014.

He said that following the review it is now possible for the Treasury to amend the VED rates to reduce the number of vehicles paying more than £300 more under the new rules.

Hammond reiterated that there would be no change to figures quoted in parliament [during the debates over the levy in 2012] which stated 94% of vehicles would pay no more VED than they currently do, while a further 4% pay no more than an additional £50 in VED per year.

The full details of the change will be re-published on the DfT website.
