Car abroad and PTI

If you are planning to go abroad for some time and intend to take your car with you, make sure that your car has a valid PTI during that period. Make sure to always take the inspection report along. You must be able to show the inspection report, for example if you are stopped by the police. If you are going abroad you must have your vehicle be PTI inspected before you go. You may not drive your vehicle without a valid PTI, in the Netherlands or abroad. It is not possible to postpone the PTI. The only countries where you can have a PTI inspection performed on your vehicle outside the Netherlands are Spain and Belgium. There are no other options in Europe for a PTI inspection of a vehicle registered in the Netherlands.
    • PTI inspections in Spain are based on Spanish regulations. Different inspection requirements apply than for the PTI in the Netherlands. Check this at the location of your choice.
    • Make sure you have the original registration certificate with you.
    • If your vehicle is registered as a taxi in the Netherlands, you cannot have a PTI inspection performed in Spain.
    • Make sure that you receive the Dutch language inspection report along with the Spanish report. The PTI will not be valid without the Dutch report.
    • You cannot file an objection with us if you do not agree with the result of the inspection.

    Tips for making an appointment online

    • Spanish telephone numbers are always 9 digits.
    • Enter your mobile number without the 0 in front.
    • Enter the 'date-first-registered' on a Spanish form with a slash between the numbers. In other words, not 20-9-2019, but 20/9/2019.
