First Registration Duty

First Registration Duty applies to new and second-hand vehicles being imported and registered in Guernsey for the first time. The Duty will be applied as part of the normal vehicle registration process and is charged in addition to the current registration and any other fees.  

First Registration Duty is based on the motor vehicle's fuel type and either the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions or, where there are no CO2 figures available, the vehicle's engine size (cc). For the avoidance of doubt, fully electric vehicles are are classed as being "0" CO2 or, in the case of a motorcycle, "0" CC.

The rates of Duty for non-diesel vehicles, diesel vehicles and motorcycles are shown in the tables below:
