Service Description

When registering a vehicle, it is not uncommon for a request to be made for a smaller license plate (so-called "US license plate" or light motorcycle license plate). Such license plates can only be issued with a special permit, which is only granted under very limited conditions.


Who should I contact?

To the district or independent city (registration authority). Jurisdiction is based on the place of residence of the vehicle owner (main residence according to the identity card).

In the case of legal entities, it is the registered office of the main branch or the registered office of the branch; this also applies to a general partnership, limited partnership or for traders and self-employed persons with a fixed place of business.

Which documents are required?

It must be confirmed by an expert opinion from an officially recognized expert from a technical inspection body that it is either technically impossible to attach normal-sized license plates due to the structural characteristics or that disproportionate effort would be required for the conversion to attach a proper license plate. According to case law, conversion costs of up to 10% of the current value of the vehicle are reasonable.

What are the fees?

Fees are charged in accordance with the scale of fees for road traffic measures. Detailed information can be obtained from the responsible office.

Legal basis

§ 47 Para. 1 No. 1 i. V. m. § 10 i. in conjunction with Annex 4 of the Ordinance on the Registration of Vehicles for Road Traffic (FZV).

What else should I know?

There is no legal entitlement to the granting of an exemption. Even the reference to other cases does not generally give rise to any entitlement.
