What is an MMBS vehicle?

A Motorrijtuig Met Beperkte Snel, abbreviated as MMBS vehicle, is a motor vehicle for which no registration number is required in the Netherlands. An MMBS is used to carry out specific (agricultural) activities. The construction speed of an MMBS can be either 25 km/h or 45 km/h. On the outside it looks like a normal passenger car or van, but due to adjustments to the engine, this vehicle can only reach a certain maximum speed.

Examples of MMBS vehicles are: limited speed road sweepers, mobile shops (SRV wagons) and self-propelled agricultural machines (not tractors).

What are the MMBS rules?

The minimum age for driving an MMBS vehicle is 16 years. In addition, you must have a T driving licence (also called a tractor driving licence) and your vehicle must be approved as an MMBS vehicle. If you do not have a category T on your driving licence, but you are 18 years or older and your driving licence B was issued before 1 July 2015, you may also drive an MMBS vehicle.

What are the requirements for an MMBS vehicle?

In addition to the admission requirements that are checked by the RDW, there are also usage requirements. The user requirements are, among other things, taking out third-party insurance, having a T-driving licence and a certain working hours act.
There are three different categories of MMBS vehicles, namely category Z1 with a maximum construction speed of 25 km per hour. Category Z2 and Z3 have a maximum design speed of 45 km/h.

MMBS and the RDW

The National Vehicle Authority (RDW) inspects the vehicle, but does not check whether you are using the vehicle for its intended purpose. The vehicle must comply with the definition, as included in the Vehicles Regulation article 1.1:

motor vehicle with a maximum design speed of not more than 25 km/h, other than an agricultural or forestry tractor or a moped, not designed for the transport of persons and designed to deliver or collect goods from closely located locations;

The term "motor vehicle with limited speed" is understood to include:

  • a. a motor vehicle with a maximum design speed of not more than 45 km/h, other than an agricultural or forestry tractor or a moped, not designed for the transport of persons and designed to carry out work outside the road, on the road or work on, in, alongside or above the road;

  • b. motor vehicle with a maximum design speed of not more than 45 km/h, with not more than eight seats, excluding the driver's seat, other than an agricultural or forestry tractor or a moped, which forms a combination with one or more trailers intended for the transport of persons;

Vehicle conversion to MMBS

Do you want to convert your vehicle to an MMBS vehicle? This does not happen just like that and a number of conditions have been drawn up for this. This procedure goes entirely via the RDW.
The RDW has drawn up a form for submitting an application for approval. You can download this form from the RDW website. It is important that you print the form, read it carefully (both the front and back) and fill in the form completely.

Via the RDW website, you can make an inspection appointment at an RDW inspection station. Take the form, including the original registration certificate, the number plates and the vehicle itself to the inspection station. Here, a RDW employee will check whether your vehicle meets the requirements.

Within five working days, RDW sends a letter to the registered owner/ holder of the licence plate. This letter states that the registration has been cancelled. Does it concern a vehicle that is not registered in the Netherlands? If so, you will immediately receive a letter from the RDW employee at the inspection station. After that, you may no longer use the public roads with the vehicle until you receive a letter from RDW. In the intervening period, the vehicle must comply with the obligations associated with owning a vehicle, such as taking out insurance.
