Louth Motor Taxation Offices

MOTOR TAX NOTICE

Under the new measures, the following have come into effect in relation to vehicle testing–

  • NCT –vehicles with a test that was or will be due on or after 28 March 2020 have that test date extended by 4 months
  • Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Tests (CVRT) – vehicles with a test that was or will be due on or after 28 March have that test date extended by 3 months

In addition, and in line with the arrangements previously in place for NCT certificates in relation to private cars, it will no longer be longer necessary to have a current Certificate of Roadworthiness (CRW) in order to tax a commercial vehicle. You should be able to renew your motor tax for a commercial vehicle from 21 April 2020, without need of a CRW.
