How to calculate the price of your registration card?

The price of your vehicle registration document varies according to several criteria. Indeed, when you want to put a car in your name, it is essential to determine in advance how much it will cost you. To do this, you must consider, among other things, the date of first entry into service, the age of your car, the department of residence, the fiscal power (or administrative power), or the CO2 emission rate. In this article, you will find the different elements to consider when calculating the price of your vehicle registration document.

The regional tax

One of the most important things to keep in mind when calculating the price of your car registration is the region in which you register your car. Indeed, depending on your place of residence, you will be able to define the amount of the regional tax of your car registration document. The amount of the regional tax varies from region to region and from year to year. Every year, the Regional Council of your department sets a tariff for the tax horse. This value will then be multiplied by the number of tax horses your car has. Note: To find out how many tax horses your car has, in other words, its tax power or administrative power, see field P6 of the old vehicle registration document. You will have understood this, depending on whether you live in the Basse-Normandie region, in Guadeloupe, or in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, the amount of your regional tax will not be the same. And for good reason, the price of the tax horse in Basse-Normandie is 35 euros, in Guadeloupe it is set at 42.50 euros while in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, the tax horse costs 51.20 euros.

The ecological tax

Another tax that comes into play when calculating the price of your vehicle registration document is the CO2 tax. It is based on your vehicle's CO2 emission rate and may represent an additional cost. Indeed, if you want to register a vehicle that turns out to be polluting, the price will be higher. On the other hand, if you choose a clean, electric or hybrid vehicle, you can benefit from an exemption from the CO2 tax. Again, it is the Regional Council that decides on the presence of an exemption. And if so, it decides on a percentage (0, 50, or 100%).

Other taxes

In addition to considering the regional tax and the CO2 emission rate, the price of your vehicle registration card is also based on the other two taxes: transport tax and management tax. The delivery tax corresponds to the amount you must pay to receive your registration certificate in your mailbox, directly sent by the National Printing Office. Mandatory, it is worth €2.76. The management fee, on the other hand, is 4 €. It includes the costs of managing your car registration application file.
