The Road Transport Department in Cyprus has announced that road tax renewals for the year 2024 will begin on January 4th and will run until March 10th.
The renewal can be done online, and the last day to renew and avoid a penalty is March 10th at midnight.
The road tax can be renewed for a period of three, six, nine, or twelve months.
The penalty for missing the deadline is €10 plus 10% of the road tax due.
It is also important to note that drivers must have insurance and MOT to renew their road tax.
The department advises against leaving it to the last minute as this could potentially lead to the system being overloaded and creating unnecessary hassle.
If you do not intend to renew your road tax for 2024, you must notify the Road Transport Department that the vehicle will be immobilized. This can be done online on the department’s website or physically at the department. Otherwise, you will still be obliged to pay the tax, whether the car is being used or not. In addition, the Road Transport Department states that vehicles that have not had their road tax renewed for the year 2023 and have not been declared as immobilized will be removed from the department’s register.
