Registration of a brand new vehicle

With the vehicle registration you will receive, among other things, the license plates for your vehicle and can move it in traffic after attaching the license plates. In addition, the tax and insurance obligation for the vehicle begins and you as the owner have to pay vehicle taxes and insurance.

The following documents must be available for admission:
  • a valid identity card or passport with current registration confirmation
  • a declaration of consent from all legal guardians for persons who are not fully legally competent
  • the registration certificate part II (vehicle registration document; if completed by the manufacturer)
  • CoC paper or EEC certificate of conformity
  • the electronic insurance confirmation as an eVB code (available from motor vehicle insurance)
  • a SEPA combined mandate in the original for the collection of vehicle tax by direct debit (form can be found under Services and 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.)
  • the appointment confirmation

Additionally, 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".
  • the authorized representative's ID in the original

Companies or associations must also submit the following documents:

  • proof of company / association (e.g. excerpt from the commercial register or excerpt from the association register)

Additionally, if an authorized representative submits the application:

  • the legibly completed power of attorney in the original with the legible color copy of the ID of the person authorized to act
  • the authorized representative's ID in the original
Please note that if you deregister your previous vehicle at the same time (appointment "Registration of a brand new vehicle and deregistration"), additional documents are required. What you need to de-register can be found under De-registering a vehicle.


Admission to the LBV is only possible if the main residence of the holder (in the case of companies, the company location) is in Hamburg.


You can also register your vehicle online (see link below under "LBV Online Services"), otherwise an appointment is required for the registration of vehicles. 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.
