Motor vehicle; application for transfer or re-registration

In the event of a change of keeper due to sale, inheritance, gift, etc., change of residence or registered office or after decommissioning, the vehicle must be transferred to its new keeper or re-registered in the name of the previous keeper or the keeper data must be corrected.



If you move, you must present the registration certificate part I to the registration authority, and if you want or need to change the license plate number, you must also present the registration certificate part II.

If the owner changes or if the vehicle is re-registered after being taken out of service, you will need an insurance confirmation in electronic form (eVB number).

If the license plate number changes, existing license plates that are still stamped must be presented for validation.

If no current main inspection can be verified with the registration certificate, a new inspection report must be submitted.


Generally none.
The main inspection deadline must be observed.
