Hints
An amendment to the German Motor Vehicle Tax Act came into force on 1 July 2010. The following changes apply to registrations from 1 July 2010: When a vehicle is registered, a SEPA Direct Debit Mandate is required for the collection of motor vehicle tax. A SEPA Direct Debit Mandate issued for initial taxation is also valid for subsequent years. From 1.7.2010, export license plates are subject to vehicle tax. The motor vehicle tax must be paid upon registration for the duration of the validity of the export license plate (SEPA direct debit mandate). The minimum taxation period is one month. Which vehicles are subject to the registration obligation is regulated by paragraphs 3 and 4 of the Vehicle Registration Ordinance (FZV). Vehicle tax exemption or reduction due to severe disability: - Severely disabled persons with the mark "H", "BI" or "aG" in their severely disabled pass are still exempt from vehicle tax. They do not have to submit a direct debit authorization because of the proof in their ID. Further information can be obtained from the main customs office in Bremen. Electronic confirmation of insurance (eVB): - You can obtain the confirmation of insurance for motor vehicle liability insurance from the insurance company of your choice. In most cases you can request the insurance confirmation by telephone from your insurance company. Since 1 March 2008, the insurer has been able to provide you with an insurance confirmation with a 7-digit alphanumeric VB number, which the registration authority uses to retrieve the insurance data electronically from the central database of the German Insurance Association. If the first issue of a registration certificate Part II (formerly Vehicle Registration Certificate) is required as part of the registration process, the vehicle must always be identified by the registration authority by presenting the vehicle.
