How to Apply
If your vehicle is new, you need a "First Motor Tax Application" form (RF 100). This is available from the motor dealer or person from whom you bought your vehicle. When you are applying for first motor tax, you must present the following documents at your local Motor Taxation Office:
- Form RF 100
- Appropriate fee.
For the taxing of a goods vehicle, if the unladen weight exceeds 1524 kg (3,500 kg Gross Vehicle Weight), a weight docket (from an authorised weighbridge) is required. If the vehicle is 1 year old or over (e.g. imported) a certificate of roadworthiness/pass statement (from an authorised tester) is required.
If the unladen weight does not exceed 1524 kg (3,500 kg Gross Vehicle Weight), a goods declaration form RF111a is required and, if the vehicle is one year old or over (e.g. imported) a certificate of roadworthiness/pass statement (from an authorised tester) is required.

Two forms are available for the purpose of renewing motor tax - Motor Tax Renewal Form RF 100A and Motor Tax Renewal Form RF 100B. The only difference between these two forms is the RF 100B is a computer-printed form that is automatically posted to you about a month before your tax is due to expire, while the RF 100A is available from your local Motor Taxation Office or can be dowloaded from the following link: Motor Tax Renewal Form RF100A
Not everyone receives a form in the post, so it is up to you to keep check of when your tax expires. Both forms should be returned to your local Motor Taxation Office in person or by post. If you apply in person you will receive your new tax disc there and then. If you make a postal application, you should allow up to 3 weeks to receive your new disc.
To renew your motor tax where there is no change in owner/vehicle details (e.g. name/address/engine size) you must complete tax renewal form RF100b (computerised reminder form issued approximately 2 weeks before renewal date by the Vehicle Registration Unit) or form RF100a available from Motor Tax Offices, Public Libraries and Garda stations.
