If you sell your vehicle or trade it in for a new model, you must register the change of ownership. This is done in one of two ways and depends on whether the vehicle was first registered before or after January 1st 1993.
Selling Your Vehicle Privately
If you sell your vehicle privately, part B of the Vehicle Licensing Certificate, which you would have received when you bought the vehicle, should be completed and forwarded to the Department of Transport Driver & Vehicle Computer Services Division Shannon Co.Clare. You cannot tax your vehicle in your Motor Tax Office until the change of ownership has been processed.
Selling Your Vehicle To A Motor Dealer
If you sell your vehicle to a motor dealer, you should complete a form RF105.
