What Vehicles can be Taxed On Line?

The following tax classes are available for on line processing:

Private cars, motorcycles, agricultural tractors, excavators/diggers, combine harvesters, hearses, vintage/veteran vehicles, vehicles adapted for use by disabled persons, motor caravans and some goods vehicle..

The reminder notice (RF100B) issued from the VRU, Shannon has a PIN number printed on the right hand side. This is the only source of the PIN. This number is not issued by your local council and for security reasons cannot be issued over the telephone or by e-mail by the VRU. By entering the vehicle registration number and PIN you will access the Motor Tax online service. Vehicle insurance details (name of insurance company, policy number & expiry date) will be requested together with the details of your credit card/laser card.

For first time taxing of a new or second hand vehicle after re-registration you will be asked to confirm a portion of the chassis number/VIN as a PIN.

You can pay for up to three months arrears online provided you are also taxing the vehicle at the same time. A receipt for the arrears will also issue with the tax disc where applicable.

Once the payment process has been completed, the applicant is informed that the tax disc will be sent via the post from the Vehicle Registration Unit. The tax disc and the Vehicle Registration Certificate (if applicable) are issued separately by the VRU. If you have not received the disc after 10 days please contact your nearest local Motor Tax Office who will check if the item was posted from Shannon. You will then need to complete Form RF134 & get it stamped at a Garda Station and bring the completed form to the MTO who will issue you with a duplicate disc.

If you experience problems with this service, please phone 1890 411 412

Postal reminders will no longer issue to vehicle owners who use the online system instead an email reminder with PIN will issue to the email address used.
