    Exemption from MRB for transitional arrangement for old-timers and other inconvenience

    I never thought about that. But if you make time for your vehicle administration, it is enlightening. I still lived in the happy assumption that classics older than 25 years young in any case still fell under the partial exemption regulation. But the rules for the transitional arrangement for vintage cars are apparently different. However […] Sea

    The number of vintage cars in the Netherlands continues to rise

    The popularity of and the number of vintage cars in the Netherlands continues to increase. Oldtimers in the Netherlands are officially cars of 40 years and older that are exempt from road tax. But the RDW and Statistics Netherlands also take into account in their figures cars from the age of 30 that are still subject to road tax. At European level, cars are […] Sea

    RDW: Rules are rules

    After his retirement, a loyal AMK reader had the time to make his dream come true: He was going to restore a 2CV. That process began a few years ago, when old ducks changed hands for little. And it ended at the RDW for the time being. A Retirement Project The car our reader found was a scraggly […] Sea

    Diesel out the door

    Diesel is nowadays suspicious, even reprehensible. The particulate matter from diesel engines is a threat to just about everything. No particle filter or cheating electronics will help. By reasoning clearly, administrators and government have made that clear. We classic enthusiasts are also saddled with that realization. And we are no longer allowed to come, drive or be the owners of […] Sea

    License plates, the RDW and the Coop…

    License plates and the Coop… And of course at the other postal agencies. Not a bad word about the supermarket staff who have been blamed for the RDW services. But it continues to make do.

    Welding a frame, is that allowed?

    Is that allowed to weld a frame? Well, not really. But it is done quite often. Anyway. Think of the now highly popular cafe racers. And if it is done neatly and technically well? Then you will actually have no problems with a police check. After all, our bikes are usually older than most agents. And […] Sea

    The license plate counter

    Every year in the Netherlands about 1.000.000 used passenger cars - and our classics are also included - and about 125.000 motorcycles with experience legally change hands. And we are talking about transactions between private individuals. Of course, the transfer can be made at one of the PostNL branches located in supermarkets. There is sometimes quite […] Sea

    About chassis numbers ...

    Just think: You have been the owner of a classic for two years that you have known from your circle of acquaintances for fourteen years. And before that, the car also had a Dutch registration. That car has already been to the garage many times and is a regular at the RDW, you would […] Sea

    Suspensions - better plan?

    On the island it costs nothing, in the Netherlands you have to pay a lot for it every year. Since the introduction in 1988, various agencies have been busy convincing the government there that annual repeating is a bastard thing. Sea

    The tax and the RDW: communication check

    Many classic enthusiasts have received a letter from the tax. Whether they just wanted to pay. In the communication between the Tax & RDW, something has gone 'smoothly': the date of first admission was looked at instead of the year of construction. Sea
