  • Kerala Road Tax

    Kerala offers some of the most scenic routes to travel by road in the country. The state has a well-connected road network which is spread throughout villages, towns and cities. Kerala (Capital City: Thiruvananthapuram) employs road taxes on the basis of the Kerala Motor Vehicles Taxation Act 1976 which provides for tax cover as per the type of vehicle. Once the road taxes are paid in full, you will receive a tax license which can be produced to show your payments whenever required.
