What is the DTES Scheme?
The Disability Toll Exemption Scheme was set up by TII in 2019 to allow Disability Modified Vehicles to be exempt from tolling charges on Irish toll roads. From February 2020, a registered disability modified vehicle will not be liable to pay toll charges at any toll plaza nationwide.
For vehicles that qualify for the scheme, a disc will be provided to be mounted on the drivers side of the vehicle windscreen. On approaching a toll plaza, the disc will be verified by a booth operator. On the M50 barrier free toll road, the vehicle registration will be made exempt from paying tools so no toll charges or penalties apply to the registered vehicle.
Here is a short guide of what you should expect at a toll plaza.
It’s so easy to register your vehicle for the scheme filling in the online application form. Once your vehicle has been verified and approved, we will issue you with your disc. The disc will be delivered within 3 working days to your nominated postal address. The disc will be valid for two years from the date of registration.
Eligibility for the scheme is clarified by the motorist having a certified disability modified vehicle.
A disc will be valid for a 2 year period, after such time a new disc will have to be issued. The disc must remain in the registered vehicle at all times.
The DTES is carried out on behalf of TII by Easytrip Ireland. Easytrip have been operating in the Irish Tolling market for over 15 year and will provide excellent customer service and operations for the DTES.
