Road tax renewals start on Jan. 7

The transport department has announced that motorists can renew their road tax from January 7 onwards, until February 2.

Failure to meet the deadline will entail a €30 fine plus 10 per cent of the tax amount.

The tax can be paid through the web http://rtd.mcw.gov.cy, or at cooperative and commercial banks, citizen service centres, post offices, or at the Road Transport Department.

Police checks will begin on February 10.

A valid MOT certificate is necessary for renewal.

People who do not wish to renew their road tax for 2015 must notify the transport department, either by submitting a certificate of destruction, obtainable from car recycling centres, or an immobilisation form, to avoid being fined.

The department urged motorists to renew their road permits early to avoid a system overload that could lead to delays and inconvenience.

Reminders will not be sent to registered car owners.

The department reminded motorists that there is a law enabling owners with overdue road tax to pay it in 12 monthly instalments.

Applications must be filed by February 28, 2015.
