How do I know when the online stamp expires

If you have a computer available and you want to know when the online stamp expires, you can contact the institution's website ACI, which allows you to check the expiry and the amount of the stamp to be paid for all regions of the city or its payment, if the stamp has already been paid.

To take advantage of the service made available by the ACI, go to the institution's website, scroll down the page and locate the form Vehicle and holder data. Subsequently, fill it in providing all the information requested in the appropriate text fields and menus: specify, therefore, the type of payment  region of residence of the holdervehicle type  targa and then reports control code to pass the security check required to complete the procedure. Then click on the button Calculate.



Once this is done, if you were to see a message informing you of be in advance of the expiry of the car tax, it means that the stamp has not yet expired and, therefore, you will also be shown the date of last renewal and that of deadline. In case you should instead see a message related to a amount not yet paid, evidently you have not yet paid the stamp duty: also in this case you will see the Expiration date of the stamp duty, which however you have evidently already passed, as well as the amount to be paid and any arrears to be paid due to non-payment.

In some cases, to view the above information, it may be necessary to provide additional information about the vehicle and / or its owner, such as the car's power, year of registration, and so on. Provide this data if necessary, so as to access the information of interest to you relating to the expiry of the stamp.



As regards the payment of the stamp duty, if this has occurred but has been made through subjects not connected to the ACI archives, the data may not even be accessible. Take this into account. Understood?

I also remind you that those who reside in Abruzzo, Basilicata, Campania, Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Liguria, Lombardy, Molise, Piedmont, the autonomous provinces of Trento and Bolzano, Puglia, Sardinia, Sicily, Tuscany, Umbria and Valle d'Aosta, have the possibility to pay the stamp directly on the ACI website, through the system PagoPA. More info here.

App to know when the stamp expires

Do you want to know when the stamp duty expires directly from your smartphone or tablet? No problem - there are several apps designed for the purpose, all of which are easy to use. Specifically, you might give the app a chance Vehicle Scanner, available for Android and iOS / iPadOS: it is one of the best apps from a graphic point of view, with which to check all types of information about the vehicle, including insurance, inspection, complaints status and car tax. It integrates an innovative system to minimize the "security codes" to be entered, which can be very useful for speeding up the control process.

To use it, install it on your device: su Android, search for it on the Play Store (or try to see if there is an alternative store, in case you have a device without Google services) and then press the button Install; on iOS / iPadOS search for it on the App Store, press the button Ottieni / Installa and confirm the operation with Face ID, touch ID or the Password dell'ID Apple.


After installing the app on your device, then recall it from the Android drawer or from the iOS / iPadOS Home screen, select the searches to be enabled at the top, placing the check mark or activating the lever next to the items RCA, revision, Bun, Complaints e ACI certificate, then enter the license plate in the appropriate field and tap on the item Search.


Once this is done, the next step is to indicate the regione of residence of the car holder, press on the item NEXT, specify the type of payment using the menu present in the window opened on the screen and press once again on the item NEXT.

Next, specify the vehicle type (car or motor vehicle) that is the subject of the check, presses on the wording NEXT, write in the appropriate text fields any security codes (the number of codes to be entered varies according to the information you want to obtain) and press on the item OK. Once this is done, press on the item Details, locate the box Bun and check the expiry date of the stamp, its amount, etc.


Vehicle Scanner is not the only app that can complete the task of your interest. So, if the latter does not work or fails to meet your expectations, you can refer to some alternatives, equally valid: I list them below.

  • Vehicle (Android / iOS / iPadOS) - a simple but effective app, useful for knowing the characteristics of the vehicle, including insurance coverage, the presence of any charges against and information on the road tax. Basically it is free, but access to information relating to the owner of the vehicle is only accessible in the paid version, which costs 2,99 euros.
  • Check RCA city (Android) - app for Android devices able to check the RCA insurance of vehicles, simply by entering the license plate. In addition to insurance, it can also show useful information on the stamp.
  • Infotate (Android) - another app for Android smartphones and tablets with which, by simply entering the license plate number, it is possible to obtain valuable information about the vehicle, including the status of the insurance, the status of complaints and even the expiry of the road tax.
  • load (iOS / iPadOS) - app able to indicate the insurance coverage, the expiry of the road tax, the expiry of the inspection and any active reports of a vehicle. To use it, simply enter the vehicle registration number and complete the various captchas that appear. Basically it is free, but information regarding the owner of the vehicle is accessible in the paid version, which costs € 2,29.
