i have a blue badge but my mobility car is exempt from paying the Vehicle Excise Tax on the grounds of disability, so it looks like because i am in the MH i have to pay the toll,,,,surely it should go on the person not the vehicle i use......
dont mind paying up,,,just seems wrong with this comment..................If your vehicle is exempt from paying the Vehicle Excise Tax on the grounds of disability - cross at the manned point (not automatic) and have documentation. Being a Blue Badge holder is not enough - the vehicle must be exempt. ....................... my car is but not the MH , surely if you are exempt in one, then you should be in another,,,,seems its discrimination on the vehicle i am in.....I might sound unsympathetic but. Pay up, enjoy the convenience and the view on the way out. You could also, in a sore moment calculate the amount of diesel and time you would have used if the crossing wasn't there.
I have a blue badge but am not currently exempt from paying excise licences. In our motorhome we pay car rate through the dartford tunnel.
Not being funny its only about £2.00 and far cheaper than the crossing into Wales and................ if you dont want to pay it travel after 10pm at night and before 6am in the morning.
However, as you are exempt, providing the tax disc/excise licence on your motorhome shows that you are exempt through disability then there is no fee for you to pay through the dartford crossing.
where it says
"Disabled Persons vehicles. There is no charge if exempt from payment of Road Fund Tax in the United Kingdom."
So tell me your car has tax exempt through disability
does your motorhome have the same privilege?
that is if its on the vehicle you are in,,,,, my car has the exempt tax disc on it, not the motor home,,,,,i pay road tax on the mh, so guess i must pay the toll,,,,,i really dont mind it just seems strange that if you are disabled it depends on the vehicle you are in as to if you pay or not....
Okay so now I am confused.
You have disabilities that allow you to claim tax exemption.
Can you only claim this on one vehicle?
I have free tax on my 8mph mobility scooter but not on my car or motorhome.
I would have expected that at the point I become so disabled I cannot walk to have free tax on any vehicle I decided to use.
At the moment I own 2 cars 1 motorhome my 8mph mobility scooter my 4mph mobility scooter 4 electric scooters and a motorbike and a moped.
Why should I be restricted to what I want to use when I have always paid full tax all these years?
So how do they decide which vehicle gets the exemption? Is it only restricted to one? I am now confused
you tell dvla what vehicle you use most and apply for exempt road tax on it,,,i have it on my motability car, but could have it on either our landrover,,,motorhome or smart car,,,when motability car runs out i am putting on the landrover,,,,surely someone should have informed you regarding this,,,
