I am advised by Revenue that the person in question should make a new application for relief under the Disabled Drivers and Disabled Passengers scheme, in respect of the purchase and adaptation of the second hand vehicle. Once the application is processed, the benefits on the previous car will cease and become available in respect of the newly acquired vehicle.

To advance matters the person should submit an online application in respect of the vehicle through Revenue’s myAccount service at www.revenue.ie. Alternatively, a completed application Form DD1 can be posted to Revenue’s Central Repayments Office, M:TEK II Building, Armagh Road, Monaghan.
