Change in Motor Tax Delivery

4 March 2020

Clare County Council has announced that motor tax delivery from the Ennistymon office will be changing.  From 16 March onwards, a motor tax online renewals service will be delivered from its Ennistymon office.   

Customers doing online motortax will receive a payment confirmation from the online service.  This confirms a motor tax disc is applied for and paid for and the disc itself will be posted out within four working days by the Department of Transport which operates the national online service. 

The percentage of people doing their motor tax online in Clare is now 73%.  The sale of over the counter discs for the balance of motor tax business in the county will be provided at the Ennis motor tax office. 

Customers who want the disc over the counter on the same day will need to present to the Ennis motor tax office (9:15 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. Monday to Friday).

Customers can ensure they have their motor tax disc ready to display on their vehicle by the due date by:

  • Renewing anytime during the whole month before the current disc runs out, for example if the disc runs out on 31 May, a new disc can be bought anytime from 1 May.
  • Buying it online in advance of the month end to allow for delivery by post by the 1st  of the month following expiry;
  • Posting the application to Ennis motor tax where the disc will be posted back the same day the application is received.
  • Buying it in the Ennis motor tax office over the counter in person, or someone else can present the completed signed form on your behalf.

Information on the change in service delivery is available on or by emailing
