  • For the payment of the vehicle tax, an original SEPA combination mandate for the collection of the vehicle tax by direct debit
    (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 submits the application on your behalf:
  • the legibly completed power of attorney in the original with the legible color copy of the identity of the principal. Note: The color copy is to be provided with the note "COPY".
