Buying a car

Cars can be bought new or second-hand. Every town has a number of dealerships with both new and used vehicles. There can be significant differences in prices and it is wise to compare several companies as well as researching prices on the internet. You need proof that you are registered at your address in order to buy a car. The town hall can issue an uittreksel bevolkingsregister (proof of registration).


Avoid mileage fraud

When you buy a used car, you would like some certainty, also on the mileage. The foundation Nationale Autopas, NAP aims to improve the provision of information when a car is being exchanged or sold.


Car service

At car garages, all aspects of car maintenance are covered including car repairs, servicing and accident repair. Most garages offer domestic and commercial clients a reliable service. Make sure the garage services the brand of your car.

Road tax

Every car owner has to pay road tax. After buying a car, you will receive payment instructions in the mail. The amount of road tax depends on the type of car, the weight of the car, the type of fuel, the age of the car, and the province where you live.
