Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO

In the Netherlands, tailboards of delivery vans must be maintained and inspected regularly. This also applies to passenger lifting devices, for instance on wheelchair buses. The Dutch Working Conditions Act states that you have to this at least once a year.

Approved testing station

Tailboards and passenger lifts are not inspected during the periodical motor vehicle test (APK). Inspections must be performed by an approved LPK testing station (in Dutch). Once the tailboard has been inspected, you will receive the following documents :

  • Your test certificate
  • A sticker bearing a unique inspection number (to be affixed to the tailboard)
  • A checklist showing all the inspection points (digital)
