Owners who are in the transitional arrangement for motor vehicles are not allowed to use the public road from 1 December. The scheme is now known, but we would like to emphasize that its conditions will be up-to-date again from 1 December.
The month of December 2021 still falls under the MRB transitional arrangement of the current calendar year. This also applies if someone has made use of the transitional arrangement this year and wishes to waive the 2022 transitional arrangement. In that case, the owner is not allowed to use the public road in the current month of December. The last month of this year is part of the 2021 fiscal period, which in terms of transitional arrangements applies to vehicles with a first admission date from January 1, 1980 to January 1, 1988.
The fiscal period 2022 applies in terms of transitional arrangement for eligible vehicles with a date of first admission from 1 January 1981 to 1 January 1988. Anyone who is not yet part of the transitional arrangement, but wants to make use of it in 2022, can register before 31 December 2021 at the tax authorities. In that case, the classic car is not allowed on the road in January and February 2022, as well as in December 2022. Parking on public land is also out of the question. More conditions apply.
Transitional arrangement and insurance: minimum liability insurance obligation
When the owner makes use of the transitional arrangement, the license plate of the vehicle is 'actively' registered with the RDW and the Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance Act (WAM) is in force. As a result, you are obliged to keep the old-timer insured for at least third-party liability in the winter months concerned. The fact that the public road may not be used does not relieve the owner of the insurance obligation. At present, the WAM only has an exception for vehicles that are suspended.
Event arrangement in transitional arrangement
Those who use the transitional arrangement and continue it in 2022 may use the old-timer for a maximum of two days during the next three "restriction months". The event must be approved by the tax authorities and be notified by its organizer. For the purpose of the MOT inspection during the winter regulation, the vehicle may be used for a day to drive to and from the inspection station. This is not at the expense of the two days allowed.
Re-use the transitional arrangement? Pay 1 bill before January 2022, but prefer immediately

The notes must before January 1, 2022 have been paid, whereby the advice is given to appearance to pay a few weeks before the turn of the year. Owners of a vehicle subject to the conditions that was first put into use before 1 January 1988, and with a first admission date less than 130 years ago, will therefore also be eligible for the scheme next year. In that case, the owner pays an MRB rate of a maximum of €XNUMX. The Tax Authorities advise participants who have not yet received an invoice by mid-December to contact the Belasting Telefoon Auto.
