Vehicle registration plate: Short-term registration plates Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.
If you want to carry out a test drive for the test of usability or an overpass with a non-registered vehicle (all vehicles and trailers subject to registration plates) within the Federal Republic of Germany, you need a short-term license plate for single use. A short-term number plate can only be issued if the vehicle has an operating licence and a valid main inspection (HU) and, if necessary, a safety test (SP). If one of these conditions is not met, only journeys to obtain the operating licence or a HU/SP to the nearest inspection centre in the registration district or an adjacent district may be carried out and, where appropriate, related journeys for repair purposes. The short-term indicator is valid for a maximum of five days. The expiration time is indicated on the indicator in a yellow box on the right edge. Thereafter, the vehicle may no longer be operated on public roads with this number plate. Short-term indicators do not apply in other EU countries, but are accepted by some EU countries. Whether a Member State accepts the short-term indicator should be consulted by the respective embassy.
