Should I bring a car with me from England?

If I move to live in Ireland from England is it a good idea to bring my car with me or should I buy over there?

Hi Russell,

If you like your current car then it’s definitely a good idea to bring it with you. Importing a vehicle as part of a change of address means that you won’t have to pay Vehicle Registration Tax, which is a significant saving. All you need is proof of the change of address, and proof of at least six months’ tax and insurance at your previous address.
