Authorised traders and processes


The Revenue Commissioners can authorise motor dealers to hold and deal in unregistered vehicles.

Being authorised also allows a dealer to avail of other benefits such as deferred accounting and pre-inspection. These, and other subjects of interest to the motor trade, are dealt with in the following sections.

For more comprehensive information and guidance, please consult the following:

VRT Manual Section 1 - Processes and procedures

VRT Manual Section 10 - Authorised Trader Manual

More extensive VRT information is given in the 'VRT Manuals' that are provided as links at the end of each section.
