I stay in the Netherlands for some time, now I see that my car with Spanish number plates, MOT judged to be where I can have it done in the Netherlands?


Hello, my question is the same as that of Marco van Mullem. My car with Spanish number plates should have been judged in February ITV but circumstances did I let him stand in the Netherlands and be flown back to Spain. Can I leave him here MOT approval and ride back to Spain?


Hello, I recently had my car to approve a Spanish ITV station for the coming year, according to the RDW is not valid. Does anyone know anything more about it?


Hi, I have a Spanish company car whose approval has now lapsed. Normally I am going to accept the car in Spain, but now that has not happened because the car was not used. I now want to use the car back but would then have a valid inspection. I can offer your car in the Netherlands?
