### Rigid goods vehicles

The band and rate payable can be calculated by using the following look-up tables. Note that in all the tables below the letter indicates the VED and levy band the vehicle is in, and the number indicates the rate that is payable as part of that band (for example B2 would refer to VED and levy band B, and rate 2 as determined by the weight and axle configuration of the vehicle). For vehicles with trailers, the rate paid depends on whether the vehicle has road-friendly suspension. There are separate tables for with and without RFS.
