    New to this gane, hence the question.

    I have just received the Vehicle Excise Disc through the post for my unit (Peugeot Boxer/Elddis Aspire) and it is taxed as PLG at £220. Having a plated weight of 3, 850 kgs, I would have expected it to be taxed as a Private HGV. Which is correct?

    Check your V5 and make sure no one have downplated it to 3,500 kg if it's a used van.

    If it's at 3850 then maybe been taxed in the wrong group, very common with new van registrations and dealers who dont know what they are doing... :Doh:

    PHG £165 :)

    Thanks Tonka. The V5 states Maximum permitted mass 3,500 kgs. However, the EC Certificate of Conformity from Elddis (it is a new 2014 vehicle) gives a Technically permissable maximum laden mass of 3,850 kgs (as does the plate in the engind compartment).

    Seems like it has been licensed in the wrong category then.

    Yep... If it's new then typical dealer c#^# up...
    You will need to get it all changed so it matches the vehicle,,

    As a side note I assume you have a license that covers the weight, i have heard of people being sold new vans and they were not licensed to drive.!! Dealer never checked or asked and still made the sale....

    Hello Tonka, yes, I think I am OK on that front - licence passed well before 1997 so can drive up to 7.5 tonnes (until 70 at least!)

    since DVLA closed all local offices some post offices will arrange the new revenue weight change....but not all po's know they can so be prepared to be rejected.

    Only other option is send the (revenue weight amended) V5, the current tax disc and the cert of conformity to DVLA Swansea.

    As you have the certificate it should be straight forward.

    You MUST return the old disc and any refund will be applied to pay for the new PHGV tax disc
