In many Dutch municipalities you will need permission, exemption or a permit to use a loudspeaker van or advertising vehicle for advertising purposes. You apply for this to your local municipality.

Loudspeaker van

Do you want to use a loudspeaker van to play music or advertise? You need to check with your local municipality what the rules are first. In some municipalities, loudspeaker vans are banned in certain areas. When you apply for a permit, permission or exemption, you should state:

  • why you need a loudspeaker van
  • the time and date you will use it
  • how loud your advertising message or music will be played
  • which route you intend to take

Advertising vehicle

If you have an advertising vehicle and you want to park it on the public road for advertising purposes, you have to apply for an exemption to your local municipality. You should state:

  • which vehicle you will ue for advertising
  • the size of the advertising message on your vehicle
  • for which company you will advertise
  • where and when you will advertise

Company van

Do you have a company vehicle that carries advertising for your own company? And is the main purpose of the vehicle travel for work? You do not need a permit or exemption.
