I bought a 3.5tonne Horsebox conversion in the UK (Renault Master chassis with the body professionally converted by a Horsebox company - very happy with it). Went with Wexford Insurance for cover to bring it home on UK reg and will let them know when I have the Irish plates on it. - easy.
Now I need to VRT it and then , i think, DOE it.
It is registered as a N1 Light Goods Vehicle on the V5 document from the UK. So I presume I bring it to VRT and it will be €200, then arrange a DOE where I declare it as a horsebox for everything to be above board?
Have I got it right above? Or do I have to do something different? I want to have it registered as a horsebox here in case of any insurance loopholes (god forbid I get into a scrape). Also any idea what the road tax will be when all is done? - there are no living quarters or extra seats in the back, so it just sits 3 people in the cab.
All help greatly appreciated. Thanks. Declan.
