Changing your Dutch or foreign registration number

Do you already have a residents' parking permit and will you be getting a new car, temporarily or permanently? Then change the registration number for your parking permit. In the pull-down menu at the bottom of this page you can read how to do this. 

  • Do you want to change your Dutch registration number temporarily?

    Please use the online application form. You will need DigiD for this. The change takes effect directly and your parking rights are activated straight away. For temporary changes, you must enter a starting and an end date. The duration must never be longer than 29 days. Once this term has lapsed, your original registration number is automatically in place again.

    Please note that it is not possible to make a temporary license plate change with retroactive effect. The starting date of the temporary change of your licence plate must always be in the future.

    Do you want to change your Dutch registration number permanent?

    Please use the online application form. You will need DigiD for this. If the registration number is in your name, the permanent change applies directly and you can use your parking right away. If it concerns your lease car or company car, you will receive a message with a link with which you can activate your parking permit. On average, you will receive this message within 1-2 working days. Until then, you will have to pay for parking in a paid parking zone.

    Please note: if you permanently change your licence plate, any active temporary change will be cancelled. If necessary, it must be applied for again.

    Change your foreign registration number 

    If you have a foreign registration number and you wish to change it, please do this via:

    • the e-mail address parkeren [at] maastricht.nl
    • the counter at the GemeenteLoket
      Please make an appointment first. The Municipal Service Desk (GemeenteLoket) is available by appointment only. 
  • The conditions for a parking permit for residents are:

    • You are registered in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) of Maastricht.
    • You live in the area the parking permit applies to.
    • The registration number of your vehicle is registered in your name, to a lease company or to the company you work for.

    Have you just moved?

    And have you cancelled your parking permit in your former district? Then it will take an average five days to process your move in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP). Once this is done, you can apply for a new parking permit for a different district.

    Second parking permit

    You may be eligible for a second parking permit if:

    • You live in the A2 or B-zone
    • Your household consists of 2 adult persons or fewer
    • You don’t have your own space to park
    • There is sufficient space in the district
      A limit has been set for this in zone A2. Once this limit is reached a second permit is no longer possible
  • Within 8 weeks after receipt, the council will reach a decision on your application. This term can be extended once.

  • You can object to the decision on your application. You should do this within 6 weeks. If after this, you do not agree with the decision on the objection, you should appeal to the court.
