In the Netherlands, the maximum speed for coaches is 80 kilometres per hour. This can be raised to 100 kilometres per hour (Tempo 100) on Dutch and German motorways, if a coach meets specific technical conditions.
You can check your vehicle's data online to see what maximum speed has been registered. If it is registered for 80 kilometres per hour, you can apply for approval to drive at 100 km/hour from the Netherlands Vehicle Authority (RDW (in Dutch).
Driving at 100 km/hour in Germany
If you want to drive at 100 km/hour on German motorways, you may need to apply for a Tempo 100 permit.
- Coaches registered after 7 December 2007 for the first time do not need to apply for a German Tempo 100 permit.
- Coaches registered before 7 December 2007 must apply for a Tempo 100 permit or sticker from the Straßenverkehrsamt.
