Vehicle: 100 km/h approval for combinations Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If you want to drive 100 km/h with your trailer, you must present the trailer to an official monitoring organization.

An authorisation of

  • passenger cars with trailers,
  • multi-lane motor vehicles with a permissible gross vehicle weight of up to 3.5 tonnes with trailer and
  • Buses with a permissible gross vehicle weight of up to 3.5 tonnes with trailer

for a maximum speed of 100 km/h on motorways and motor roads, a demonstration of the trailer is required at:

  • an expert,
  • an examiner, or
  • a test engineer

which is part of an officially recognized monitoring organization (TÜV Nord, DEKRA, GTÜ, KÜS, FSP, TÜV Süd Autopartner, TÜV Rheinland, TÜV Hanse).

The competent registration authority shall enter the necessary amendments in the registration certificate Part I (formerly: vehicle registration document).

  • Registration certificate Part I of the trailer.
  • If you are still in possession of the old vehicle documents (vehicle registration document and vehicle registration), both must be presented.
  • Expert opinion on the fulfilment of the technical requirements or confirmation by the manufacturer.

If you instruct a third party to register the change, they will need a written power of attorney from you; in addition, he must present your identity document (in copy) to the admissions office. He himself must have the identity document that applies to him with him in order to identify himself.


Before you arrive at the inspection centre, please contact the manufacturer of your trailer; an approval for 100 km/h may already be available.

Further information can also be found on the websites of the monitoring organisations.
