Registering a car on Sunday: at the counter

Nowadays you can also transfer a car on Sunday. In the past, everything was closed on Sundays, but in more and more cities there is a shopping Sunday once a month or even every week. This means that the shops with a PostNL location are often open too. In addition, there are PostNL locations in supermarkets, which are also open on Sundays in an increasing number of places. Of course, you are then bound to the opening hours of the location, and these are often limited on Sundays. Always check in advance whether the nearest location is open that day. That way you will not find yourself standing in front of a closed door.

Transfer car online on Sunday

You can also choose to transfer your car online. This is possible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In that case you are not bound to opening hours, but you can choose for yourself what time suits you best. There are, however, a few things to take into account. For example, you must do a one-off identity check on your proof of identity. You can do this with your mobile phone via the DigiD app. Your mobile phone must be an Android smartphone with version 6.0 or higher or an IPhone model 7 or higher with iOS version 13. These specific models have an NFC chip reader, which can be used to carry out the identity check. In addition, you will need the car's registration card and the car's registration code for the online transfer. The online transfer of a car can be done via the RDW website.

Is it more expensive to transfer a car on Sunday?

No, the cost of transferring a car is always the same. Whether you transfer the car on Wednesday or Sunday: the cost remains €10.75. It is customary that the buyer pays these costs for the registration, but you have to arrange this with the seller of the car. Only once the costs have been paid is the license plate transferred. You as the new owner must then also fulfill all vehicle obligations, such as paying motor vehicle taxes, MOT requirements and obtaining car insurance. Fortunately, you can also insure your car on weekends.

Insuring a car at the weekend

Once the car is transferred into your name, you are also required to have car insurance. Without car insurance you are not allowed to drive the car. Car insurance is also available on weekends. At Alpina.nl you can purchase car insurance online 24/7. Based on the license plate number, we can already find out some information about the car. Then you fill in some personal data and choose a coverage. After this you will get an overview of all car insurance policies that meet your requirements. To actually take out the car insurance, you will also need the report code. This is a four-digit code that the insurer needs to register your car with the RDW. The report code consists of the last four digits of the car's chassis number.
