How to renew your Road Tax (Circulation License).
The most effective and quickest way to renew your Road Tax is online. Below we provide the link to the website you can do this, the JSSsmart.com, where you will be required to log on or register with your e-mail and a password.
In order to register or log in successfully the following will be required:
Registration Document (Log Book).
The owners' reference number is the last three digits of your ID, Alien Card or Passport number. This is the one shown on owner section of the logbook for that vehicle under I.C. No. or [C.9] on the newer Greek language log books.
Insurance certificate may be required if cover commenced recently and has not yet been entered onto the database.

You cannot renew your circulation licence
If your vehicle requires, but does not have, a current DoRT Vehicle Inspection Certificate (MOT), this information is logged on the DoRT database. If the MOT expires during the currency of the circulation licence, and is not renewed, the circulation licence becomes invalid and you are likely to be prosecuted for both offences.
Prosecution for driving without circulation licence.
You may renew your road tax, usually from the end of the first week in January until the end of the second week in February without penalty. After that time the police will prosecute. After the grace period a fine of €30 + 10% of the rate of tax for the vehicle will be levied on renewal. If the tax is not renewed for a full year, further penalties apply.
If your vehicle is going to be off the road.
If you are not going to use your car, going to the UK on an extended stay for example, you can obtain a rebate of some of the road tax unused during your absence or delay having to renew your road tax.
What you should do before you go away?
Or as soon as the vehicle is off the road, fill in a form TOM 12 and take it to the Department of Transport Offices or Citizen Service Centers.
In due course a rebate cheque will be sent to you.
You will have to nominate a place, off the road, where it will be kept during your absence so that it can be inspected. The notification cannot be backdated and is similar to the Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) in the UK.
