No they don't, they're are not paying to use the roads, the only road that motorists pay to use are toll roads or congestion zones, none of which apply to A band motor vehicles or electric.

“Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) (also known as "vehicle tax", "car tax" or "road tax", and formerly as a "tax disc") is a tax that is levied as an excise duty and which must be paid for most types of vehicles which are to be used (or parked) on public roads in the United Kingdom.”

...but it goes to central funds - it is not a Road Fund and hasn't been for decades



Regardless where it goes, if you don't pay you are breaking the law.

I don't think VED is a law either is it? Surely that would be an act?

Breaking the law can put you in jail. Not paying VED won't. But lets not let facts get in the way, this is the NewburyToday forum after all.

Not paying the fine will ultimately land you in gaol.

I don't believe that is true.

Non payment of criminal fines or council tax are the only bills which you can be imprisoned for as far as I can tell. Happy to be corrected but I can't find anything to suggest otherwise. Non payment of VED incurs a charge not a fine.

Being found to have a motor vehicle on the road without VED can mean:

Out of Court Settlement (OCS) letter issued.

OCS set at £30 plus one and a half times the outstanding vehicle tax rate.

If settlement is not paid, as a criminal offence the case may be pursued via the Magistrates Court. Penalty is the greater of £1,000 or five times the amount of tax chargeable.

Vehicle may be clamped.

I believe not setting Magistrates' court fines could then lead to prison, even if unlikely.

The offence of not paying a fine is different and seperate though, even if it is related.

In my statement I said ‘ultimately’ for that reason.
