Road tax renewals start today

Road tax renewals started on Monday and vehicle owners have until Monday, March 11, to do so.

Road tax can be renewed done online on http://rtd.mcw.gov.cy, at commercial banks, at citizen’s services centres, district post offices and the headquarters and district offices of the Road Transport Department.

The last date for renewals is Monday, March 11, 2019. After that date there will be a surcharge and police will start booking drivers as from March 12.

Road tax can be renewed for three, six, nine or 12 months. Vehicles must have an MOT and insurance.

Those not planning on renewing their road tax should notify the department that they are immobilising their vehicle and submit the necessary form, alternatively they will owe the equivalent sum to the state.
