ha,ha... by the way, I just got a call from Allianz-spain that they might be able to insure a spanish plate eventhough I live in Ireland. maybe you could try Allianz Germany.... but remember that if you're stopped by the police you can't say that you work here...
You'll be totally insured (so no danger for irish bikers or pedestrians) but still have to act before the Gadai.

dunno! I'll probably go the right way and pay huge irish insurance!

Correct. If you arrive into Ireland from abroad and plan on staying less than a year, you do not need to register your vehicle in Ireland. Same applies even if you are working here, so long as it is "temporary". If you stay longer than a year, then yes you do need to register your vehicle with Irish plates.

Of course, you still have to check that your insurance from your foreign company is valid. Typically they require that you are still a permanent resident of that country. Could be tricky if you're in a crash in Ireland after having been here for 7 or 8 months.

Oh right, sorry Slapper

I'm going to be 30 this year though...mine is TPO as well...Quinn gave me a much cheaper quote when I was enquiring about the cage, €520 from memory, but I would've lost a years NCB from Nash, and they were only going to refund me 200 or something from my 1300 down

Hi Persius,

Where did you hear about this year thing?. I'm driving myself mad trying to figure the whole thing out.
If you read the info on the Tax & Customs web site, it doesn't say anything but to register it within 24h!

http://www.revenue.ie/index.htm?/faqs/faq_cat8.htm

It only says that we are excempted to pay taxes when importing a vehicle within the first 12 months since our arrival. (We also have to proof that we owned this vehicle for at least 6 months!)... ...But it doesn't say anything about being able to drive it for those 12 months! You still have to register the vehicle within 24h since its arrival.

I don't understand all those foerign cars either... ... unless they pretend to be on holidays.

PS: By the way, checking whether my spanish insurance would cover my vehicle abroad was the first thing I did.

Default Re: Bike Insurance in Ireland -How much do you pay?

Just went today to a Vehicle registration office and asked them how long can I be here for without changing plates.
They told me that we got 3 months if we're on holidays... but they also said that they can't really check how long you have been here as when you drive into the country, there's no proof of inmigration or anything...

...so no wonder why those eastern european countries cars are still driving... THEY ARE ON HOLIDAYS!!

... You, lucky bastards!

Well, from my side, I'm gonna do it the right way (just in case ) and get an irish bike with a proper irish insurance... this way, everyone's happy, the insurance company, the goverment & Mr. Bertie!
