    Shocking: “Frans Weekers withholds crucial information in classic car file”

    New and revealing facts have emerged in the vintage car file. Last week, Stichting Autobelangen issued a letter of formal notice to the Ministry of Finance in connection with the lack of requested calculations and substantiations. The reason for the lack of data is becoming increasingly clear. Because Wouter van Embden's club made it clear that State Secretary Weekers Read more

    Exemption from MRB options

    Rejected motions offer new possibilities in MRB exemption issues

    It didn't come as a surprise. The Lower House recently rejected two motions by Farshad Bashir. These motions included a relaxed transitional arrangement for "the old car". Farshad Bashir was disappointed that the motions coincided with the headache-causing Bulgarian file. The Hague - and with it State Secretary Weekers - did have something else in mind. Read more

    Motions for relaxing old-timer control diesel and LPG old-timers rejected

    Today the House of Representatives returned from the May recess and it would vote on postponed motions that had been submitted just before the recess. These motions also included the motions of MP Farshad Bashir (SP) to include the younger LPG and diesel vintage cars in the transitional arrangement that will apply to petrol vintage cars from 26 to 40 years old per 1-1-2014 . State Secretary Weekers advised the House of Representatives in submitting these motions to support the House because, according to Weekers, both LPG and diesel are used to cover many kilometers and to drive cheaply. In the Weekers proposal, gasoline, LPG and diesel cars are only road tax-free from 40 years, and for gasoline cars between 26 and 40 years old a quarterly road tax applies (with a maximum of 120 euros per year) prohibition on not using the oldtimer during the winter months or to put it on the street.

    The soothe and smoky MRB agreement

    Recently State Secretary Weekers and the old-timer alliance - after six months of bargaining - suddenly reached the MRB agreement. The age limit for duty-free petrol cars rises to 40 years. Petrol cars older than 26 years are eligible for a quarterly rate (maximum 120 euros). Then December, January and February are not allowed on the road in the winter months. Another important decision is that Diesels and LPG cars that are younger than 40 years are fully taxed. Without additional arrangement.

    Motor vehicle tax exemption (MRB)

    Our mission: unconditional retention of the motor vehicle tax exemption (MRB) scheme as we know it up to now.

    The approach: trust. After all, a government must be reliable. Changing a rule repeatedly over a period of a few years without urgent necessity does not inspire confidence in citizens. Read more

    Our own Soap - exemption MRB share something

    A striking detail is, of course, that part of the alliance, the BOVAG and the RAI have been urging the government since the beginning of last year to overhaul the scheme for old-timers. So you may wonder why people have repented there now, or there are hidden agendas. Who now has what interest? The importance of the BOVAG and RAI is of course clear. But what is the importance of the KNAC in this? The KNAC has traditionally been a club for modern transport. But in recent years it has also moved towards the classic driver.

    Our proposal about the Motor Vehicle Tax for Old-Timers

    We think that with many owners there is a willingness to pay, as long as it is fair. A changing number plate would be a good solution. Just like there is for garages and dealers, where there is a set per license plate and a license plate is paid for. More license plates, more money. A number of fixed rates apply. One for cars, no matter what weight and one for motorcycles, perhaps even according to Minister Weekers' proposal a quarterly rate, based on an average car or motorcycle Read more
