The collection of license plate taxes in our country began in 1936. For purposes of revenue generation, some provinces, cities and prefectures began to collect license fees or user fees for cars and ships which are similar to a vehicle license tax. Due to differences in local procedures, the standards for collecting such fees differed widely in February 1947, all such collection procedures were standardized when the General Provisions for Vehicle License Tax Collection Law was promulgated. Following several amendments, this Law was superseded by the Vehicle License Tax Law in May 1950.

The Vehicle License Tax law was amended nine times between 1955 and 1979. Initially , this tax was collected directly by city and prefecture governments. Gradually, via the various amendments, the responsibility and was administered directly by cites. Very clear provisions now cover collection and registration procedures. Due to the rise in use has greatly increased and this tax has become a major source of revenue for local governments.

In 1979, Article 6 of the Law was amended in order to implement the government policies of discouraging wasteful expenditures on luxury items and encouraging energy conservation. Under the amended law, vehicle types were divided into three categories; 1) small passenger vehicles; 2) large passenger vehicles; and, 3) motorcycles. The license taxes are levied on a progressive basis according to the total cylinder displacement volume of the vehicle's engine.

In 1995, the law was amended in order to reduce the burden on people whose income is below the average level and to diminish the growth in private small passenger vehicles. Therefore, there is no tax on motorcycles below 150 cubic centimeters, and the tax on private small passenger vehicles or motorcycles above 151 cubic centimeters increased according to the total cylinder displacement volume of the vehicle's engine.

In 1998, the law was amended in order to loosen up the requirements of exemption on mentally and physically disabled persons, change the collection procedure from making public announcements for levy information to delivering tax notifications to taxpayers, and lower fine criterion.
