The Road Tax in Cyprus
Ways to Renew your Road Tax for 2015
* The insurance certificate is required only in cases where the insurance is new and it is not updated properly in the database of Road & Transport Department.
The deadline for Road Tax renewal for the year 2015 is on the 9th February 2015.
From the 10th February 2015 the police will prosecute. After the grace period a fine of €30 + 10% of the rate of tax for the vehicle will be levied on renewal. If the tax is not renewed for a full year, further penalties apply.
The Road & Transportation Department decided to spare the road tax of immobilised vehicles in case their owners will file TOM 12 application to have the vehicle declared idle. Specifically vehicle owners who have not paid their road tax for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 for vehicles they are no longer using, they will not be subject to road tax if they file TOM 12 application to the Road and Transport Department or provide a sworn statement from the court to verify that their vehicles are no longer in use.
Those who have already paid the road tax on their immobilised vehicle will be refunded.
TOM 12 application cannot be backdated and should be submitted to the Road and Transport Department by the vehicle owner as soon as the vehicle becomes idle.
