Related FAQs

My goods vehicle is out of tax and I need to get it tested at a DOE centre. Can I bring it to the test centre without it being taxed?

Yes, you can bring your vehicle to the test centre, and if it needs to be repaired, back to a garage without it being taxed. If you are bringing the vehicle to a test centre, it would be advisable to carry a copy of the appointment letter for the test or re-test with you in case you are stopped by Gardai.
