Vehicles: Registration certificate Part II (vehicle letter) Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.
The person registered in ZB II is the owner of the corresponding vehicle. The owner is who uses the vehicle for his own account (namely, denies the costs and can actually dispose of the vehicle; this is often not the owner of the vehicle. The registration certificate Part II (ZB II) is therefore not proof of ownership, but ultimately only facilitates the registration procedures, since it is assumed that the person holding the ZB II is entitled to have access to the vehicle. In Germany, the Part II certificate consists of a one-sided printed document on forgery-proof special paper in the format 21 × 30.48 cm (formatted 21 × 29.7 cm). For data protection reasons, the previous owners of a vehicle are no longer traceable by name for data protection reasons, with the exception of the last holder (as opposed to the old vehicle letter). Only the date of the first approval and the number of previous lists are entered. From the third holder of the vehicle, the entry of each other second new holder (i.e. the fifth, the seventh, etc.) requires the issuance of a new ZB II in connection with the registration. There is no general obligation to exchange from the old vehicle registration certificate to the new Registration Certificate Part II. Automatically exchanged if a new vehicle letter is to be issued anyway (e.B. because it has been lost, regardless of whether the old vehicle license is still available or if the issuance of a new ZB I (vehicle license) is required. Invalid vehicle letters of an old kind and invalidated ZB II will be destroyed by the registration authority if the keeper does not want to have them handed over again after rendering unusable.
