My Tuscan now basks in the glory of only costing £220 per year in Road Tax.

meanwhile, my Porsche Cayman costs £460 per year !! This is due to the £100 per year hike in tax in this year's budget for cars with 226 g/km CO2 or higher.

The Cayman is officially 227 g/km !!mad

Did you buy the spectraflair silver one on the convertible register ?? If so , I will update the register.

The other suprising one paying excessive Road Tax is Racing Greens development Tuscan convertible, the one Richard Hammond drove with the FFF engine, that appears on the back page of SPRINT. confused

So even dealers get it wrong.

Just to make sure I am on the right path! Tuscan 2001 first registered September 2001 should cost in tax £215?

Right or wrong?

Glow worm thanks for all the information, and everybody else, I have today been able to go through all the threads and sort out a letter to the DVLA which will be in the post tomorrow.
One point to add while I was going through the documents I have with the car there is a certificate from TVR with a serial number on it stating British National Type Approval, Ministers approval certificate for low volume motor vehicle type covered by a previous certificate. The secretary of the state for transport being satified that low volume type approval vehicle which has been manufactured by TVR Engineering Ltd and has the vehicle identification or chasis number, (my chasis number)conforms with the vehicles to which Ministers approval certificate LC333/A/034 relates.
If a scanned copy would help PM me, did everybody get one of these cert from new.
I will let you guys know how I get on.

Yes ... I have one of those...I did not need to send it to the DVLA...As I've said before just play dumb...send in your V5C (sign-for mail) stating it is incorrect and should be PLG...They have to do something then.

Many thanks to you guys, just received my new log book with PLG tax class and blank on the C02 emmissions, I did exactly as instructed and they turned it round in under 4 months.
I assume I have to apply for a refund.

Regurgitating an old thread here but have just had a knockback from the DVLA to have my 03 Tuscan reclassified as a PLG, after having submitted all forms and supporting documentation (even an excerpt from the classification criteria which states TVR do not apply!!).

They say its correct and to change it i'd need a letter of confirmation from the manufacturer plus a certificate of conformity.

Mighty hacked off as thought I’d covered the bases with this.

Any suggestions or cars i could possibly reference which have been successful in reclassification?

Cheers
Richard

So what is the going tax rate now?
I just payed for my 2006 Tuscan Convertible, 'Private Light Goods' at £270.00
I guess that's correct in 2020.

Thanks, I may do that. I sent another letter off yesterday questioning their rational and apparent lack of a consistent approach.

I wonder where that Chim is now; was a mechanically reliable car and cosmetically immaculate when I sold it ( had a full stripped back respray). I still have a soft spot for yellow chimaera’s thumbup

Think I paid £315 this year; I have a feeling the emission based vehicles are going to go through the roof in the near future.

As I've said previously ... Don't bother with letters ... Just return your V5C stating it is incorrect , follow the advertised procedure... worked for me ... But make sure its recorded/signed for !!! because I'm sure the DVLA will be capable of losing it and claiming it never arrived smile
Get rid of PC (Petrol Car) classification .. I think a speed six CO2 emissions are 305 g/km frown
