Procedures for declaring a vehicle off the road

 From 1 July 2013, new arrangements will apply for declaring a vehicle off the road for motor tax purposes.

The new arrangements require a vehicle to be declared off the road in advance where the owner intends not to use it on the public road for a period. 

The new arrangements will replace the system which allows owners to declare a vehicle was off the road when seeking to tax a vehicle after a period when it has not been used on the public road.

There will be a three month transition period from 1 July 2013 to 30 September 2013 during which both systems will operate.  After that, the current system, where a person can go to a Garda Station and make a declaration that a vehicle was off the road, will cease.  Owners coming forward with untaxed vehicles after 30 September 2013 will be liable for all motor tax arrears before a new motor tax disc can be issued. Owners in arrears will not be able to make a declaration of non-use until the arrears and a minimum of three months’ tax are paid in respect of the vehicle.
