Vehicle registration, re-registration of a decommissioned vehicle, private individuals

The vehicle was last registered in Hamburg, is out of service (deregistered) and is now to be registered again for the same owner in Hamburg (in the case of a change of owner and / or re-registration from outside: see vehicle re-registration).

  • Valid identity card or passport with current registration certificate,
  • electronic confirmation of insurance -eVB number- (available from motor vehicle insurance),
  • Registration certificate part II (vehicle registration document),
  • Registration certificate Part I (vehicle registration document) with a note about the decommissioning,
  • Valid test certificate of the last general inspection (TÜV), if an inspection was already required for the first time, as well as, if applicable, proof of the safety inspection and emissions test carried out
  • a SEPA combined mandate in the original for the collection of motor vehicle tax by direct debit (see "LBV, SEPA mandate for motor vehicle tax" under links)
    If the tax is not to be paid by the keeper himself, but by a so-called third party willing to pay, a copy of the ID of the third party willing to pay is required.
  • Appointment confirmation
If an authorized representative makes the application for you:
  • the legibly completed power of attorney in the original with a legible color copy of the vehicle owner's ID. Note: The color copy is to be provided with the note "COPY".
  • Original ID of the agent


The vehicle was last registered in Hamburg, has been decommissioned (deregistered) and is now to be registered again for the same owner in Hamburg. The main residence of the keeper under registration law is in Hamburg.


An appointment is required for the registration of vehicles.

The previous registration number can only continue to be used if it was reserved for this purpose when it was decommissioned (de-registration).
If the keeper and owner of the vehicle are not identical (as is the case with leasing vehicles, for example), the LBV must be informed of whom the vehicle is to be registered for.

Trips with assigned, unsealed license plates
Trips related to the registration process can also be made with assigned, unsealed license plates if the insurance covers this. Such journeys are journeys to carry out the general inspection (TÜV) and to the licensing authority. These trips are limited to the registration district and the adjacent registration districts.
