The Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) office has been located at St David’s House, off North Main Street since 1992. More recently Revenue appointed the National Car Testing Service to carry out a range of vehicle registration functions on its behalf. Now a vehicle imported into the State must be presented at the NCTS centre for registration and this must be done within 30 days. A Revenue Commissioners spokeswoman told the Leader that for this reason the Naas VRT office will close “in the coming months.”

She added that when arrangements for this are finalised the closure will be flagged locally and with notices in the Revenue office and in public places around Co Kildare.

Revenue staff are assigned in a manner that ensures that customers are provided with high quality, customer centric services, to met demand.”
