As soon as you register as a resident, you must register your car and pay taxes.
Any resident driving a vehicle that was rented, borrowed or leased in another country (and registered outside the Netherlands) can get an exemption from the tax on private cars and motorcycles & motor vehicle tax for up to 2 weeks.
- tax on private cars and motorcycles ("BPM")
- motor vehicle tax ("MRB")
