Motor vehicle re-registration after decommissioning

Service Description

If you have deregistered your vehicle, you can re-register it at any time. When you re-register, the motor vehicle will be registered to you again. If you have moved or purchased a deregistered used vehicle, the vehicle owner data will be updated when you re-register. This applies to all vehicles, regardless of country of origin and regardless of the type of license plate requested.

However, exceptions or special regulations apply, for example, to work machines, forklifts, vehicles for agricultural and forestry purposes, light and mopeds, ambulances, four-wheeled light vehicles and special trailers.

Registration is effected by issuing the registration certificate (Part I and Part II) and sealing the registration number(s).

The registration authority is entitled to order the presentation of the vehicle.

special notes for kreisfreie Stadt Erfurt

Since 01.10.2017, a vehicle can be re-registered to the same owner without changing the registration district using the license plate reserved when the vehicle was taken out of service (stage 2) via a decentralized internet portal of the city of Erfurt (internet-based re-registration).

The requirements are published on the website of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

The date of effective re-registration is the date following the third day on which the documents were sent.

As part of the new procedure, vehicle tax arrears, fee arrears and the existence of a valid main inspection or safety inspection are automatically checked in the portal using web services provided by the KBA.
