The service:vehicle:* tagging scheme was introduced by iD Editor as a way to tag what the type of services a shop=car(dealership) and shop=car_repair object provides, in a way that does not conflict with the existing use of the service=* scheme used for tagging service roads (highway=service).


A few of the most used tagging combinations are listed below. More can be found by doing a search on Taginfo.

Another alternative is using the service=* tagging scheme to tag what kind of services a car repair shop provides. Which currently has the most usage despite service:vehicle:* being used in iD Editor. The service tag has mainly been used together with highway=service tag and the different usage in association with shop=car_repair might be confusing to some users. Another alternative is to a car:* namespace tagging scheme. Neither scheme has been discussed or approved though, but at least service=* is used more than the two other options. Although, tagging should not be based on prior tagging numbers alone.
