Re-registering a motor vehicle (with change of owner and WITHOUT taking the number plate with you) Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If a registered vehicle has been purchased, a transfer to the name of the new owner must be applied for immediately from the vehicle registration authority. The application may be made in person. A representative with written power of attorney may also be appointed. From 01.10.2019, the new registration of a vehicle is also possible online under certain conditions. Further information on "internet-based vehicle registration" is available on the website of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (see "i Where can I find out more?"). Note: New vehicle documents have been available since 1 October 2005. These are the registration certificate part I (old: vehicle registration document) and part II (old: vehicle title). These are uniformly designed in the European Union (EU).

Hints
Paragraphs 3 and 4 of the Vehicle Registration Ordinance (FZV) regulate which vehicles are subject to the registration requirement. On 1 July 2010, an amendment to the Vehicle Tax Act came into force. The following changes apply to registrations from 1 July 2010 onwards: 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. Motor vehicle tax exemption or reduction due to severe disability: Severely disabled persons with the mark "H", "BI" or "aG" in their severely disabled pass continue to be exempt from motor vehicle tax. They do not need to submit a direct debit authorization because of the evidence 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.
An application for approval must be submitted to the approval authority. The application can also be made by a representative (e.g. car dealer) with a written power of attorney. If a desired registration number is desired, a reservation can be made in person, in writing or by telephone, or as an online service via the Internet, even before new registration. When the vehicle is registered to the new vehicle owner, a new registration certificate Part I (previously: vehicle registration document) is issued. It may also be necessary to issue a registration certificate Part II (previously: vehicle registration document). In case of a change of owner within Bremen, the previous license plates can still be used. In such a case, an already existing particulate matter sticker also remains valid. If the used vehicle was last registered in another registration district, new registration plates and, if necessary, a new particulate matter sticker are required. The insurance company is automatically informed by the registration authority about the allocation of the license plate number. To avoid longer waiting periods, appointments can be made: -> for Bremen-Mitte: by telephone under (0421) 361-88671 -> for Bremen-Nord: by telephone under (0421) 361-88644 Note: Customers without an appointment will be served in parallel, with priority given to appointment customers. Commercial registration requests will continue to be accepted without appointment. Tip: License plates can be produced during the registration process. For this purpose, private suppliers have settled near the registration authorities. The costs for the signs are not included in the fees. The license plates are stamped by the licensing authority, i.e. they are provided with stickers for the main inspection and the licensing district.
