Bike Tax in Nepal 

Any individual who rides a two-wheeler must pay a bike tax in Nepal. The vehicle tax collected each year is one of the country’s primary sources of revenue. The federal government distributes the funds raised to state and local governments for road maintenance and new projects. It also contributes to keeping the cost of road safety and security low. 

The Nepalese government charges various types of fees and taxes associated with vehicles. This includes the registration fee, ownership change, blue book registration/renewal fee, change of location, vehicle tax, inter-regional pass tax, route permit tax, and more. Among these, vehicle tax is the most significant and recurring. You must pay it each time you renew your blue book. Before that, you need to buy compulsory third-party insurance as well. 

Every year, the Department of Transport Management (DOTM) levies taxes on vehicle owners. The tax rate varies according to the type of vehicle and its capacity. The greater the CC and Watt of your bike or scooter, the more taxes you will have to pay annually. Similarly, internal combustion engine vehicles are taxed at a higher rate than EVs (electric vehicles).
