Vehicle Registration Certificate
|From 31st May, 2004, a new Vehicle Registration Certificate(VRC) has come into use.
The VRC will be issued by the Department of Transport. It replaces the registration certificate currently issued by the Revenue Commissioners and the licensing certificate currently issued by DoEHLG.
The new VRC will be used throughout the EU for identification of the vehicle in international traffic and for its re-registration in another member state.
The VRC will be issued by DoEHLG after the vehicle is first licensed for use on the public road (road taxed).
The VRC will show details of the vehicle such as make, model, colour, body type, etc.
If your VRC has been lost, stolen or destroyed, you must apply for a replacement at the motor taxation office with form RF134 completed at a Garda Station, and €12.00 fee.
