Fully electric cars are exempt from road tax until at least 2020. Vintage cars of over 40 years old are also exempt from road tax. For a semi-electric car, you often pay a reduced road tax rate.
Once your car is sold or scrapped, you no longer have to pay road tax.
If you sell your car to a private individual, you need to have your registration number registered to the name of the buyer at a PostNL office. You then receive a notice of release of liability. The Tax Authority will then automatically stop charging you road tax.
If you are not going to use your car for a while, you can suspend your car’s registration number at the RDW or a PostNL office. Suspending your registration number does involve costs. As soon as you have suspended your registration number, you no longer have to pay road tax for your car.
