Any owner/holder of a vehicle registered in Luxembourg can temporarily deregister their vehicle, regardless of the reasons—for example, if the owner/holder wishes to take a motorcycle or a vintage car off the road for winter, or is temporarily unable to drive.
Any owner/holder of a vehicle registered in Luxembourg who wishes to temporarily deregister their vehicle (i.e., take their vehicle off the road).
Once a road vehicle registered in Luxembourg has been temporarily deregistered, the owner/holder of the vehicle in question must inform the National Society of Automotive Traffic (Société nationale de circulation automobile- SNCA) within 5 working days, using the downloadable vehicle deregistration declaration form.
The declaration may be filed:
The vehicle can also be deregistered online via the procedure on the MyGuichet.lu platform.
The declaration of vehicle deregistration must be accompanied with part I of the registration certificate (carte grise).
To receive the reimbursement of road tax following the temporary deregistration of a vehicle, applicants must send or hand in the tax sticker to the Central Office of the Customs and Excise Agency, indicating the IBAN number of the bank account of a Luxembourg institution.
Sending or delivering the tax sticker to the Central Office without deregistering the vehicle first does not give rise to a refund of the road tax and involves the return of the tax sticker to the debtor of said tax.
Therefore, the Customs and Excise Agency only reimburses the road tax when the vehicle has first been deregistered with the National Society of Automotive Traffic (SNCA). The date considered to calculate the amount of the reimbursement is the date on which the vehicle was temporarily or permanently deregistered with the SNCA.
Annual lump-sum taxes for classic vehicles are not reimbursable.
The tax is payable for as long as the vehicle is not deregistered with at least Part I of the registration certificate.
