Vehicle license plate - apply for a green license plate for a tax-exempt motor vehicle

Service Description

Certain vehicles that are exempt from motor vehicle tax pursuant to Sections 3 and 10 of the German Motor Vehicle Tax Act (KraftStG) have license plates with green lettering and a green border on a white background. These include, for example

  • Vehicles of certain non-profit organizations,
  • agricultural and forestry vehicles, and
  • certain trailers - exceptions to this are listed in Section 9 (2) of the German Vehicle Registration Ordinance (FZV).

The green license plate remains on the vehicle until it is taken out of service or re-registered in another registration district or until there is a change of owner. If the requirement for a green license plate is not met, a motor vehicle tax may be assessed by the main customs office. From this point on, the green license plate must be changed to black at the registration office.
