Motor vehicle registration number red classic car registration number ("07" older than 30 years) Apply for allocation

Service Description

Vehicles that were first registered for traffic at least 30 years ago are considered "historic" (the date of the first registration is decisive). These vehicles may only be used for the maintenance of motor vehicle cultural assets. If you have a red classic car license plate, you do not need an operating permit or registration for this or for driving to and from such events. This also applies to test drives and transfer journeys as well as journeys for the purpose of repair or maintenance of the vehicles concerned. Private or commercial use is excluded.

Requirements to be registered as a vintage vehicle:

  • registered for the first time at least 30 years ago
  • Appraisal by an officially recognized expert from a technical inspection agency or a test engineer from a monitoring organization in accordance with § 23 of the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO)
  • Good original condition of the vehicle
