The winter period within the transitional arrangement for vintage cars is over again. This means that owners of petrol vehicles, which fall under the 2017 scheme, can be taken back on the road from 1 March to 30 November.
When a passenger car, truck or motorcycle powered by petrol was first put into use on 1 January 1977 or later, but before 1 January 1988, it is eligible for the scheme this year. The invoice for the arrangement must already have been paid by the owner in 2016. The owner pays a maximum of € 122 motor vehicle tax. In January and February, with the exception of a few event days as well as MOT test drives, the vehicle was not allowed on the road in January and February. Parking in a public place was also prohibited in the first two months of this calendar year.
Diesel and LPG
Motor vehicles on Diesel en FUEL - regardless of age - are not eligible for the transitional arrangement. Owners pay the full rate for this, unless the license plate is suspended. Motor vehicles from forty years and older are exempt from MRB, regardless of fuel type.
December 2017 falls under the transitional arrangement for the current period: the calendar year 2017. Then the vehicle - just like in January and February 2017 - is not allowed on the road. And here too: the use of a public parking is prohibited.
Not in control now? Only then in 2018 possibilities
Those who do not make use of the 2017 transitional arrangement, but wish to do so next year, can download, fill in and send the form 'request motor vehicle tax special rate' via the website of the Tax Authorities. Anyone who is not currently in the scheme will only be eligible again as of January 1 2018. Before 1 January 2018, the tax authorities must have received the request to make use of the transitional arrangement. It is also advisable to complete the form well in advance deadline from the New Year to the Fiscus.
Stop this year with a transitional arrangement
If, during the course of this year, a vehicle owner in the transitional arrangement decides to immediately abandon the arrangement, he must pay the normal rate retroactively from 1 January 2017.
