On-Road Costs, Explained.

26 June 2020

Perhaps you’re in the market for a new Kia, but keep getting stuck on what the +ORC means at the end of a price. ORCs, or on-road costs, are the extra charges necessary for getting your new vehicle registered, safe, and road-ready. Prices for ORCs vary with each dealership, so we’ll walk you through what your fees cover at Cockram Kia and explain what ORC actually means.

What do on-road costs include?

The on-road costs are in addition to the MRP on each vehicle. Each dealership has different prices for their on-road costs, but rest assured that they are unavoidable and typically non-negotiable. Cockram Kia goes above and beyond with their offering, making sure your new vehicle is road-ready, legal, and eye-catching.

Our on-road costs include:

  • New vehicle registration
    • Costs vary based on fuel type and engine size
  • Road user charges for diesel vehicles
  • Full tank of fuel
  • 3 years WOF
  • Genuine floor mats
  • Professional groom
  • Pre-delivery inspection
