NICOSIA- The Road Transport Department Friday announced that vehicle owners will be able to renew their registration from Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
According to an official announcement, vehicle registrations can be renewed either online at http://rtd.mcw.gov.cy, at co-op or commercial banks, at Citizen Service Centres or at Road Transport Department offices.
To renew their registration, owners must have the vehicles’ roadworthiness certification (MOT) and insurance handy.

Any registrations renewed after this date will also be charged an additional €30 and 10% of the relevant renewal fee.
Also, online renewals will be subject to an additional 50 cent fee which will appear as a separate charge on the vehicle owner’s credit card statement.
