Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

You may only use a vehicle subject to registration on public roads if it has been registered for this purpose by the competent registration authority.

The registration certificate part II is proof of the right of disposal, but it is not proof of ownership.

It is an EU-wide document.

If your vehicle still has an old registration certificate, it remains valid.


Process flow

In the case of a new vehicle, you will usually receive a pre-filled form of the registration certificate part II from the manufacturer in connection with the purchase of the vehicle.

As part of the registration process, the registration certificate part II is issued by the competent authority.

Competent authority

The locally responsible registration authority in the district or city (registration office). In the case of natural persons, responsibility is based on the place of residence of the vehicle owner (in the case of several residences, on the location of the main residence) and in the case of legal entities, tradespeople and self-employed persons with a fixed place of business, on the registered office or the location of the branch office involved.

Requirements

The completion of a registration certificate Part II or its first issue by the registration authority is only permitted on presentation of

1. the certificate of conformity,

2. the data confirmation or

3. the certificate of individual approval of the vehicle.

4. proof of authorization to dispose of the vehicle: in the case of a new vehicle, this is e.g. the purchase contract, in the case of a used vehicle it would be the previous registration certificate Part II.

What are the fees?

Fees are levied in accordance with the Schedule of Fees for Road Traffic Measures. Further information on the amount of the fee can be obtained from the vehicle registration authority.
