What Car Q&A May 2009 - Baffled by road tax
Because your car was registered between March 1, 2001 and March 23, 2006, you'll pay £245 a year for your tax disc from April 2010.
Bands L (226g/km-255g/km) and M (over 255g/km) only apply to cars registered after March 23, 2006. If your Mercedes had first been registered later, you'd have had to cough up £425 a year.
