Registration certificate Part I Exhibition Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The registration certificate Part I has replaced the vehicle registration certificate. It is an official document to clarify the fulfilment of the technical operating conditions. The person registered in the registration certificate is the owner of the corresponding vehicle and therefore not necessarily also owner or even owner, even if in most cases it is to be assumed.

The advantages are the increased security of counterfeiting, the EU-wide readability and standardisation, and the higher information content.

  • SEPA direct debit mandate for the collection of vehicle tax
    • This must be submitted in writing in the original signed by the holder in the case of approval, including by third parties. In the event of a different account holder/account holder, this mandate must be signed in the original by the holder and by the account holder. The specified bank details must be proven.
    • Alternatively:
      • a certificate stating that the Main Customs Office waives the direct debit authorisation or
      • proof of exemption

Additional documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.

There are sometimes problems with the transfer of old information to the new papers. In principle, the new box 22 of the registration certificate Part I serves to take over the entries in the "Remarks" box of the previous vehicle registration certificate. If the space there is not sufficient, a supplement is issued, which is attached to the registration certificate part I.

Check the correct transmission of all information when issuing the new papers and complain if any inconsistencies are possible. When the new papers are issued, have the old vehicle registration certificate devalued in order to have a document on the previous entries.

In the case of a false affidavit, penalties may occur in accordance with Sections 156, 161 of the Criminal Code (StGB) and Section 5 of the Road Traffic Act (StVG).
