Start of temporary coronavirus procedure for Individual registrations (import)

Update 30 March: from today it is possible to register vehicles via a temporary coronavirus procedure. This enables vehicles to be issued with a Dutch registration certificate. Vehicles from EU countries that have already been sold in the Netherlands will be the first to be eligible for this procedure.

Test phase completed

Last week RDW started testing a temporary procedure with various accredited companies to enable vehicle registrations to restart.

Temporary procedure

The new temporary procedure is intended only for RDW-accredited companies. The required documents must be supplied digitally and to a central point before being assessed by RDW testing station employees. At the end, the applicant will receive an e-mail notification that the RDW process is complete. A physical test will follow in specific cases. RDW may also conduct random tests later.
