Vehicle registration in case of transfer to another owner within the registration district


If you wish to register a vehicle for a new owner in the registration district of your place of residence or permanent establishment, you must apply for a transfer at the competent authority of your registration district.

Process flow

The application can be made in person or through an authorized person.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district, with the district-free city and with the municipality, joint municipality and city entrusted with this task.

The main residence according to the identity card is decisive. In the case of legal persons, this is the registered office of the main establishment or the registered office of the branch.

Which documents are required?

  • Registration certificate Part II or, in the case of vehicles exempt from registration but subject to marking, the type-approval

    • This must be submitted in writing in the original signed by the holder upon admission, also by third parties. In the event of a different account holder, this mandate must be signed in the original by the holder and the account holder. The bank details provided must be proven.
    • Alternative:
      • a certificate stating that the Hauptzollamt renounces the direct debit mandate, or

What else should I know?
