Fill in form V85 and apply in person at a Post Office that deals with vehicle tax to get an HGV vehicle licence (tax disc).

You need HGV tax for lorries that weigh more than 3.5 tonnes when loaded.

You’ll need to provide a V5C vehicle registration certificate (log book). You can apply for a replacement log book if you don’t have one.

Tax rates for HGVs

The amount of tax you need to pay depends on your vehicle’s tax band, whether it has road friendly suspension and whether or not you have a Reduced Pollution Certificate.
