Operation of vehicles permission Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In principle, vehicles may only participate in traffic on public roads if an operating licence has been issued for this purpose. An operating licence shall be issued for a vehicle if it complies with the requirements of the StVZO or the relevant European regulations. For type-approved vehicles, the approval is confirmed by the EC conformity certificate (CoC paper). In addition, the general operating licence (ABE) issued by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) is considered to be proof of the following. For non-type-approved vehicles, an individual operating licence shall be issued by the registration authority. The operating licence expires when changes are made, by the type of vehicle approved in the type of type of type of vehicle is changed, a risk to road users is to be expected, or emissions or noise behaviour is worsened. If a vehicle has its licence expired, the registration body may prohibit the operation and require the presentation of the number plates for de-stamping. In addition, driving without or with an expired operating licence regularly leads to the loss of insurance cover.
