Where are the motor tax offices?

In Northern Ireland there are a total of eight Local Vehicle Licensing offices (also known as motor tax offices) situated throughout the province which all offer a full range of over-the-counter services.

Opening hours

Opening hours for all these are 9.15 am to 4.00 pm Monday to Friday, with exception to the third Tuesday in every month when they will not open until 10.00 am. This is for staff training. Local Vehicle Licensing Offices are also closed on public and bank holidays.
