If an application form is necessary, it can be arranged in advance at the competent authority and completed at home. Depending on the offer made by the competent authority, the application may also be made as an online service via the Internet.


If the conditions for a green number plate are no longer met, a motor vehicle tax may be fixed by the Main Customs Office. From this point on, the green indicator is ineffective and must be changed to black.
