Shortly moving to Ireland. Have owned 2010 car in UK since new. Will be taking car with me. What's the procedure for getting it Irish-plated and taxed?

This is not really relevant. This is all about buying a car and paying VRT. I am not doing either.

Once you have lived outside Ireland for at least a year, you won't have to pay VRT. More info here:

There is a great deal of noise in this thread. If you and your wife are moving to Ireland you won't have to pay VRT. Google "vrt transfer of residence". The only issue might be whether you have really moved, but if your wife is here that should do the trick.

Just make sure whatever cars are in your name 6 months before you move and you'll avoid VRT. You will need a PPS number and a bank account here before you can register them (I was a non-person for a a couple of months when I got here while I waited for them )

Otherwise registering them is the standard procedure, just no VRT and you can't sell them for 12 months.

Id check this out if I were you. If the car is travelling back and forth to UK you may be ok as you are, as I think there are conditions as to how long you are here on a permanent basis. Also worth checking with your insurance company as regards your cover, being in Ireland.
If it needs to be changed to Irish plates you wont need an NCT (MOT in UK) as the car is less than four years old.
Best of luck, most of us here would get out given half a chance.
