Motor vehicle license plates; application for a green license plate

Green license plates are issued for tax-exempt motor vehicles.


Green license plates are license plates with green lettering on a white background and are otherwise identical to the "normal" license plate.

The registration authorities only issue the green license plates if the approval for tax exemption has been obtained from the main customs office. If they are already issued before a decision is made by the main customs office, this is done to save the applicant additional costs. The holder is obliged to change if his application is not granted.

An internet-based allocation of a green license plate is currently not yet possible.
