How much to tax our Renault horse truck?

I am wondering if you are able to help me as I find the car tax system confusing. We have a 1991 Renault horse lorry that is now 30 years old, a 3.5T model. What should it cost to tax?

Hi Olivia,

In theory, once any vehicle is 30 years old or older, it qualifies for so-called ‘vintage’ tax — which is a mere €56 per year. If for any reason your truck doesn’t qualify, then it’ll be taxed according to its engine capacity. Rates for any goods vehicle under 3,000cc start at €333 per annum.
