I recently bought a car here in Holland and am not exactly sure about the Dutch process of transferring the ownership title. I'm about to receive the registration documents, but I don't have a Dutch driver's licence (I have a British one) or residence card. I do own a house here, pay local taxes and have a BSN number. Can I just go to the Post Office to transfer title and register the car in my name? Or do I have to go to an RDW office? If so, which one? The car is currently taxed and insured, I think, but the insurance policy is not in my name. Do I need to get a policy before I transfer the registration? If so, where is the best place to get insurance? Thanks in advance for your help.
Hi, I've been informed that I might qualify for BO status (no, I wasn't expalined what this stands for) which might make motoring a lot cheaper. I'm told this means no car tax for ten years or import duties on my car or on a new car. I have some questions as it all seemed a bit vague. 1. Who exactly qualifies for this designation? I won't be paying local taxes on income in Holland for my particular employer so it is a certainly I will get it? 2. Do no car taxes mean, no annual tax (mrb) no bpm, no vat on a new car? Or just the first one? Do you only get one mrb or possibly vat free registration of a car? So if I import my own that I wouldnt be able to get a new one without paying these taxes.
Hey all, The back wheel on my bike has gotten bent, to the point where the tire rubs against the frame. It's pretty much impossible to ride. Can anyone recommend a bike store in The Hague area that has a big selection of bicycle wheels/rims so that hopefully I can find one that will work for my bike. It's an old Giant model (suXes). Any ideas?
