Written answers (Question to Transport)

In light of the temporary closure of test centres due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I have removed the requirement for commercial vehicles to have a current Certificate of Roadworthiness in force when taxing a commercial vehicle that is over a year old. The relevant Regulations are the Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness (Vehicle Licensing) (Revocation) Regulations 2020 (S.I. No. 134 of 2020).
