The Motor Tax for our car will expire by the end of this month. I’ve received a reminder by email. It contained the PIN which is needed to renew the tax online. So I went to http://www.motortax.ie Monday morning to extend the motor tax for another year.
Does your car’s tax expire in the near future? Did you already receive the email with the PIN? Then all you will need to get this job done is the registration number, the PIN, the car insurance policy and your credit card. Let’s get started!
Go to Motor Tax Online and click on the icon that says MOTOR TAX which will lead you to the login screen. Enter your car’s registration number and the PIN and click on Log In. You will be guided through the six steps, which are:
Step 1 of 6: Vehicle Details Check the details of your car. Suppose they are all right, click on
Step 2 of 6: Registered Owner Details In this step your details are listed (name, address, phone number and email). You can edit them if necessary. Then continue by clicking on
Step 3 of 6: Insurance Details Now you will need to fill in the required information (name of the insurance company, expiry date, policy number) regarding your car insurance. All done? Then click on
Step 4 of 6: Motor Tax Details this page contains data about the date on which your motor tax will expire and the date on which the new task disc will commence on. Select to extend it for 3, 6, or 12 months. If you plan on driving your car for another year, and if you are able to do so, extend the tax for a whole year. This will save you quite a few euros. However, if you are planning on selling the car soon and/or trading it in for another one, you might want to extend it for a shorter period. As soon as you have made your preferred choice, click on
Continue to Payment>>
Step 5 of 6: Payment you will see the total amount to pay and then enter the details like credit card number, expiration date, security code, and cardholder name. Once you have filled in the information and you are okay to continue (immediate payment is required as soon as you will) click on
Step 6 of 6: Transaction Complete you will see a Payment Confirmation page where the Transaction Reference Number, the Vehicle Registration Number, the New Taxation Period, the Transaction Date, the Total Amount, the Registered Owner, and the Address are listed. Click on Print this page to print and/or save the document.
Then click on Logout which will lead you to this page:
You will receive a confirmation by email shortly after and your new Motor Tax Disc should arrive by post within about a week. Ours arrived today.
PS: Your disc won’t have the squared paper piece on it, of course 😉 That was put there to protect sensitive data.
