Have vehicle put out of service


Since March 01, 2007, no distinction has been made between temporary and permanent decommissioning. A vehicle has either the status "registered" or "decommissioned". This means, among other things, that vehicles can be registered again for a maximum of 7 years without a new inspection. Only a general inspection is required. This makes life easier for the owner, who also saves the cost of a new inspection.
Return journeys after removal of the stamped plates may be made with the unstamped plates in the registration district shown on the plate and in the adjacent district on the day of deregistration (decommissioning) until midnight at the latest. When doing so, the license plates must be attached to the vehicle. When driving, you must take the shortest route (without detour).

  • Registration certificate I (old: vehicle registration document), if the owner appears in person.
    If an authorized person carries out the decommissioning, this person must submit an informal declaration made by the owner, from which the authorization can be seen.
  • If the vehicle was registered to a legal entity, the registration certificate II must be presented.
    - In the case of a registered transfer of ownership by way of security, the submission of the registration certificate II is replaced by the bank's written consent to the decommissioning.
  • License plates
  • Operating permit for vehicles not subject to registration, such as light motorcycles
  • Informal declaration of whereabouts or proof of disposal (in the case of disposal of cars and small trucks up to 3.5t total weight abroad or their disposal in Germany)

Please note an important innovation regarding the reallocation of the license plate:

Vehicles that are taken out of service after 01.03.07 no longer automatically "keep" "their" license plate. In the future, the license plate will be released again by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) after a short period of time. If you subsequently wish to use this license plate again for subsequent re-registration, you should definitely make an advance reservation of your license plate at the registration office.

In the case of vehicles that were immobilized under the old law before March 1, 2007, the license plates will not be released until 18 months after immobilization.

The registration authority of your district or independent city is responsible.
However, vehicles can also be deregistered in any other city/district.
