The rates of vehicle excise duty (VED) tax discs have gone up between 2 and 5% with the new tax year and most drivers don't know how much they are going to pay for their next tax disc until the renewal day comes. New car owners are more likely to be surprised, given that first year VED is included in the On the road price and the rates that apply when the car is first registered are different from the regular ones.

MyOwnCar gives you up-to-date information on your next tax disc and allows you set up e-mail reminders so that you get no surprises when it comes to your vehicle tax. The DVLA will send out a form V11 as a useful reminder, but your address will need to be up-to-date to receive it, and some drivers make the mistake of just putting it in the "to do pile".

This is just one of the many tools available on MyOwnCar. You can also get email reminders for MOT, service and insurance, track costs; like new tyres and repairs and retain vehicle value by making sure you use your warranty.

MyOwnCar is developed and maintained by vehicle data specialists Carmen Data, so you can rest assured that only the most up to date and accurate data will come to you.
