In order to clarify the whereabouts of vehicle documents, it is necessary, in accordance with § 5 of the Road Traffic Act in conjunction with § 27 of the Thuringian Administrative Procedure Act, that an affirmation in lieu of an oath be made in writing at a notary of your choice or before authorized employees of a vehicle registration authority. The loss of the vehicle documents must be declared in lieu of an oath by the person who lost the vehicle document.

The replacement documents can also be applied for by an authorized person if the affirmation in lieu of oath has already been made in writing before a notary or a vehicle registration authority.

If the registration certificate Part I or the vehicle registration document is lost, a replacement document can be issued immediately.

In the event of loss of the registration certificate Part II or the vehicle registration document, the bidding procedure in accordance with Section 12 (4) of the German Vehicle Registration Ordinance (FZV) must be followed. The lost registration certificate Part II or the lost vehicle registration document is listed in the traffic bulletin for 14 days for presentation to the registration authority. Only after this period has expired may a new registration certificate Part II be issued for you.

A new registration certificate Part I or registration certificate Part II cannot be issued if you are in arrears with fees from the motor vehicle affairs department.


For technical and organizational reasons, no losses of vehicle documents can be processed on Saturday if the affidavit is to be filed at the registration office in Erfurt. Processing is only possible if the affirmation in lieu of an oath has already been taken down in writing at a notary public or at a vehicle registration authority.
