Motor vehicle deregistration for decommissioning

Since 1 March 2007, no distinction has been made between temporary and final decommissioning. A vehicle has either the status of "approved" or "decommissioned". Only one main examination (HU) is required. This provides a relief for the holder, as the costs of a new acceptance are also saved.

Return journeys after removal of the stamp badges may be carried out with the unstamped number plates in the registration district indicated by the number plate and in the adjacent district on the day of decommissioning until 24 o'clock of the same day at the most. The registration plates must be affixed to the vehicle. During the journey, the shortest route must be taken without a detour.
