Vehicle registration certificate inspection at RDW
In some cases, you need to have your vehicle inspected at a RDW vehicle inspection station. This is the case if you adjusted your vehicle, for instance, or if you want to import it into the Netherlands or have it subjected to a periodic technical inspection (Dutch APK).
Wat kunt u doen?
Damage inspectionIn case of inspection of a vehicle that has been damaged, several aspects are important. You cannot turn to any RDW vehicle inspection station, for instance, and the bottom of the vehicle needs to have been removed. If this is not the case, the vehicle cannot be inspected. This is due to the fact that RDW needs to perform vehicle body measurements, which require reference points at the bottom of the car to be accessible. Before making a vehicle inspection appointment, please read all information about inspection of your vehicle after it has been damaged. (This information is only available in Dutch)
