The reason for this is that you as a Dutchman with a car drives on public roads on which no BPM has been paid yet. When the customs you persist, they will point you to the duty to carry out BPM. If you, however, held on the direct route to the place of purchase of the vehicle home or RDW inspection station, and you indicated that you import including paying BPM going to settle, you'll be there with a warning to stop. Once you are home, you need a car or put on private property and you may not live to see it ride until you have a Dutch license. An exception is also one-day registration allows you to drive on the day of the RDW inspection to go to the RDW.

From the moment you have the Dutch license plate, the car tax is automatically and in addition, you yourself must ensure that the vehicle is adequately insured. A Dutch license you ask at the RDW. You must drive to a RDW inspection of your choice, where the data is checked by the car. For the day of the test you can actually apply for a one-day badge, which allows you to enter the car from your house to the RDW inspection station can drive. The appointment can be made easily via the website of the RDW. Is the identity check everything is in order, then the car is registered in the vehicle registration. When the car is older than three years, the mandatory MOT can incidentally also import controls are done by the RDW. After the RDW inspection has taken place, you should go BPM declaration to the declaration point in the testing. A few days after the payment of BPM, you'll receive your registration and you can make let the plates. Fun to drive!

I would like to know about what it takes to get a motorcycle license plate on ie it is a light engine of 125 cc which I can buy in France? Hope you can give a target price vr gr FG Berends.


In Germany the owner loves his badge, so it may well be that a previous owner again used the license plate. In Germany, the chassis number, the identification of the vehicle. The chassis number must be of course unique. Importing a vehicle receives a Dutch registration.
