License plate: Desired license plate

Owners or owners of vehicles can, on request, receive a license plate with a self-selected letter / number combinations (so-called desired license plate). For most of the available license plate pool, it is possible to reserve the desired license plate online. In addition, this is possible with a personal interview or with individual regulatory authorities by telephone. License plates can be reserved for all vehicle classes. attention The Vehicle Registration Ordinance (FZV) specifies maximum widths as well as sizes of letters and numbers and minimum distances between the fields for the various license plates. If, for example, a (reserved) license plate does not meet these criteria, it cannot be assigned. There is therefore no legal entitlement to the allocation of the reserved number plate. The number plates should therefore only be procured in advance if the registration authority has given assurances that the reserved number plate will actually be allocated.

On the website of the competent registration authority, the function for reserving a desired license plate must be called. After entering various personal data, you can research which license plates can be assigned. If you have made a reservation for a desired license plate, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. The reservation of a desired license plate is also possible with a personal interview or individual registration authorities by telephone.
