Deadline for this year’s road taxes to be renewed is midnight on Saturday

Midnight on Saturday is the deadline for this year’s road taxes to be renewed, the road transport department has announced before reminding that late renewals are subject to a fine.

Road circulation permits can be renewed for a period of three, six, nine and 12 months either online, at citizen support centres, district post offices and transport department offices. Applicants must submit a certificate of MOT and valid insurance.

The Road Transport Department’s Vladimiros Zavros told Philenews that since the beginning of this month the rate of renewals has doubled – reaching 25,000 per day.

He then urged “citizens not to wait for the very last day” before settling any outstanding issues. So far, the process has been completed for 80% of Cyprus’ cars, he said.

“We reached 565,000 renewals by Monday, and we expect these to soon exceed 700,000,” he added. By Wednesday, March 1, a total of €55 million had been collected from renewals.

A €10 euro fine plus an additional 10 per cent of the value of the road permit for the current year is the penalty for late renewals.
