Table description


This table contains key data on the vehicle fleet of passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles (by vehicle category) and by age class of the vehicle.
The figures are based on the registration numbers provided by the Dutch Road Traffic Authority (RDW). All vehicles registered on 1 January of each year have been counted, the data are recorded and stored and the register can be accessed for statistical purposes.
As from 2004, the total count of vehicles is not fully comparable with previous years due to separate registration of trailers and semi-trailers.

Data available from: 2000

Status of the figures: final

Changes as of 21 februari 2020
Figures of the vehicle fleet on 1 January 2020 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
New figures of the vehicle fleet on 1 January 2021 will be published in February 2021.
