A 'conversion' means that you modify the characteristics of a vehicle so that the details given at registration are changed.

There are three ways in which a vehicle can be converted:

  • converting a new and unregistered vehicle
  • converting a vehicle registered outside of Ireland before registration in Ireland
  • and
  • converting a vehicle already registered in Ireland.

This section sets out the steps in the vehicle conversion process.

You can find more detailed information on conversions in the relevant VRT Manual.
