F - First registration fee

05 June 2006

First registration fee - Whenever a new car is registered, an administrative charge of £25 is levied. This one-off payment is in addition to whatever road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) is payable. If you're thinking of buying an import, make sure you include both costs in any price comparison.
