If you move to another registration district, you must immediately re-register your vehicle and, if necessary, apply for a new license plate.
If you as the organiser wish to organise a trade fair, an exhibition, a wholesale market, a weekly, annual or special market (e.g. Christmas market), a permit for the event is required.
A vehicle re-registration is always given when a vehicle is brought from outside to Hamburg as part of the move. A vehicle re-registration is also given if a Hamburg resident buys a registered vehicle away from home.
Registration of a vehicle that has already been registered abroad (non-EU country) is possible upon application. Authorisation shall be granted by the competent licensing authority.
