To register a new vehicle you’ll need the following documents:
- Your ID or passport
- Residence certificate (Meldebescheinigung)
- Vehicle registration and ownership certificates (Fahrzeugschein + Fahrzeugbrief / Zulassungsbescheinigungen TeiI I + II)
- Electronic insurance confirmation (eVB) number
- Some registration offices require bank/credit card details to collect car tax, or some also accept cash
To register a vehicle, you will also need to provide a valid road worthiness certificate following your vehicle inspection test (HU+AU-TÜV).
For de-registered vehicles, you will also need the de-registration certificate.
