Re-registration of motor vehicle in case of change of owner

Service Description

If there is a change of keeper, the previous keeper or owner must notify the registration authority immediately. This also applies in the case of a donation or if the vehicle was given to a car dealer. The new owner must immediately re-register the vehicle with the registration authority responsible for his or her place of residence.

In addition to the license plate number and the personal data of the purchaser, the notification must also include confirmation from the new keeper that the registration certificate and license plates have been handed over. The new owner must also be given the test reports for the main and exhaust emission tests and the test logbook (if it is a vehicle subject to mandatory testing).


Throughout Germany, you have the option of retaining the previous license plates on the vehicle. If you do not wish to make use of the license plate transfer, you still have the option of applying for a new license plate. Additional fees will be charged for a personalized license plate.

If your vehicle has a fine dust sticker, this may become invalid due to new license plates. If you want to drive in environmental zones and do not have an exemption permit, you should also apply for a new fine particulate sticker when you re-register.

Note: Vehicles can be registered to private individuals and legal entities or companies as vehicle owners, i.e. also to:

  • Companies,
  • authorities or
  • associations.
