Motor tax rates for private cars registered in Ireland

In Ireland, motor tax for privately owned cars is calculated in two different ways, depending on the age of your vehicle. Please scroll down to view our simple list of Irish motor tax rates.

If your car was registered before July 2008, the motor tax rate is calculated based on the engine capacity.
