License plate Allocation of small plates

Not infrequently, when registering a vehicle, the desire for a reduced license plate (so-called "US license plate" or light motorcycle license plate) is expressed. Such plates can only be granted by means of an exemption, which is granted only under very limited conditions.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district and the independent city in which you have your residence.

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.
