How to check a car from the Netherlands?
autoDNA Report for vehicles from the Netherlands will be of great help for anyone who wishes to purchase a second-hand vehicle from this country. It allows you to check the vehicle history and verify its current mileage. Our reports for Dutch vehicles are made on the basis of data we obtain from the Netherlands national mileage registry Nationale Auto Pas (NAP) and the Netherlands central vehicle registry RDW. These organisations collect and administer data regarding second-hand vehicles.
Our reports allow you to verify the mileage using the VIN number free or charge; we are able to do this thanks to the Dutch national mileage register (Nationale Auto Pas). The NAP was established to prevent odometer rollbacks in second-hand vehicles. It has been a few years since the NAP started collecting mileage history from a number of reliable, verified sources:
- Car mechanics
- The Ministry of Road Transport
- Leasing companies
- Insurance companies
- Diagnostic stations
The summary of the report contains basic information that helps you identify the vehicle: its VIN number, make and model. The summary also contains two very important variables that have great influence on the rating the vehicle receives: the year in which the vehicle was first registered and the number of owners it had while in the Netherlands.
This part of the report includes relevant information about status of verfied vehicle. Registration status indicates whether the car has been formally deregistered from Netherlands.
In this section there are important dates concerning registration formalities: dates of first registrations and expiration date of last vehicle inspection..
Information about insurance liability indicates whether the car has a valid mandatory insurance. Legal status of the vehicle means possible legal lien on the vehicle established by the bank or other financial institution as a result of taking by owners the load or credit.
An important information is withdrawal from drive on public roads. It usually happens in case if the
vehicle does not meet technical requirements to drive on public roads in the Netherlands. Reasons might
-there is no valid technical inspection
- does not meet technical requirements
- vehicle damage as a result of an accident or collision
- vehicle damage as a result of a flood or fire
Date of permanent / temporary withdrawal from drive on public roads, indicates that the vehicle cannot be currently driven on public roads in the Netherlands.

In vehicle ownership history there is detailed information about previous car owners on the Netherlands territory, period of vehicle ownership by each of them and type of the owner (individual, company, leasing).

In the part of mileage verification in the National Mileage Registry there is current odometer reading entered by the user verified with the national registry. The result of verification is presented on the report. There are three possible verification results:
- Reliable, when mileage is authentic. Current odometer reading is higher then last odometer reading from NAP registry.
