In terms of vehicles, 'conversion' means that you modify the characteristics of a vehicle so that the type-approval, or details given, at registration are changed.
There are three ways in which a vehicle can be converted:
1. converting a new and unregistered vehicle
2. converting a vehicle registered outside of Ireland before registration in Ireland
3. converting a vehicle already registered in Ireland.
This section sets out the steps in the vehicle conversion process. For more detailed information, see Detailed information on conversions (VRT Manual 1).
