Hi there,

Haven't participated much in the last couple of months - wow, moving abroad is quite a thing. In any case, we're more or less settled, started some rebuilding work and are getting used to this new environment.

I do have a question: we brought our car (a van) as well and need to register it, get license plates, insurance, etc. I figured out what to do in NL, but PT is a bit unclear to me, also because of the type of vehicle (VW T5). Also, the order of things seems to matter quite a bit. Anyone with experience of this kind? Many thanks in advance!
