New registrations fee

You’ll have to pay a fee of £55 if you’re registering and taxing a vehicle for the first time with DVLA.

You can pay by cheque or postal order. You can’t send cash.

You don’t have to pay for some vehicles, including:

  • those first registered and licensed in the disabled exempt taxation class
  • historic vehicles previously registered with the old local authorities (late conversions)
  • vehicles previously registered in Northern Ireland
  • imported vehicles previously registered under the personal export scheme and new means of transport scheme
  • visiting forces vehicles
  • vehicles registered under the direct export scheme
  • vehicles registered for off-road use only
  • crown exempt vehicles
