You can have the weight of your yellow plate van reduced in order to pay less vehicle weight tax and tax on private use of a vehicle, for example. You will be charged an additional vehicle registration tax after a weight reduction.

  • The processing time for valuation is approximately 2 months.
  • Typically, vans registered for the first time on 3 June 1998 up and until 24 April 2007 are granted reduced owners tax and reduced tax on private use of a vehicle.
  • In general, vans registered before 3 June 1998 are only granted reduced vehicle weight tax.
