Rate to increase by 3.2% for most vehicles next month

Vehicle tax is set to go up by 3.2% next month.

Tynwald voted in favour of a move from Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer this afternoon, with just MHKs Clare Barber, Lawrie Hooper and Rob Callister voting against it.

Under the new measures, all motorbikes will now be charged a flat rate of £25.

Vehicles more than thirty years old will also be charged the same fee.

Mr Harmer said given the rates haven’t gone up in two years, it was effectively 1.6% per year, which is lower than inflation.
