Motor vehicle: replacing license plates Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If your vehicle's license plate plates have been damaged or illegible or stolen, you must ensure that they are replaced by new license plate plates. The necessary test stickers are applied by the approval authority. In the event of theft or loss of the license plate plates, a relabelling is necessary. In any case, report the theft to the police.

Registration certificate Part I (or old vehicle registration document), in the case of re-identification registration certificate Part II (or old vehicle registration document), valid identity card or passport with current registration confirmation, or (in the case of foreign citizens) foreign identity card and registration certificate of the residents' registration office, if the rear registration plate needs to be replaced: the certificate of valid general examination (HU), previous license plate(s). If you instruct a third party to register the change, the latter requires a written power of attorney from you.
