Online Taxing of Small Public Service Vehicles (SPSV)
From 1st November 2018, owners of Taxis, Hackneys and Limousines can tax their vehicles online at www.motortax.ie
The Department has worked closely with the National Transport Authority in developing an electronic interface that will enable all Small Public Service Vehicle (SPSV) licence holders to supply the necessary supporting evidence to enable their vehicles to be taxed online.
The service is available to all SPSV licence holders who are renewing or taxing a brand new/imported vehicle for the first time as a Taxi, Hackney or Limousine in this State, from 1 November 2018.
To renew motor tax online, the SPSV owner must enter the vehicle’s registration number, their PIN and their SPSV licence number on the website. Once this combination is confirmed, the owner is allowed access to the service.
The service is not available online where the tax class has changed after a change of ownership and the vehicle is being taxed by the new owner for the first time i.e. a private vehicle now being taxed by the new owner as a Taxi, etc. In that instance the vehicle must be taxed at the owner's local Motor Tax Office. All subsequent taxing by that owner being available online.
