If there is a change of keeper, the previous keeper or owner must notify the competent registration authority immediately for the purpose of changing the vehicle register.
Depending on the services offered by the registration authority, a corresponding form is available for download.
A notification is not necessary if the purchaser has already informed the registration authority of the changes. The purchaser must notify the registration authority responsible for his place of residence or registered office of the new owner data and the vehicle data immediately after the change of owner and, on request, provide evidence of this, apply for a new registration certificate Part I and submit the registration certificate Part II for the change (transfer).
Please contact your local licensing authority.
Which documents are required?
The notification must include the registration number of the vehicle, the surname, first name and full address of the purchaser and confirmation that the registration certificate has been handed over.

The sale of a vehicle must be reported to the registration authority in writing without delay.
Vehicle Registration Ordinance (FZV)
If the previous keeper or owner does not comply with his notification obligation or if the vehicle is not immediately re-registered or put out of service, or if the data provided by the new keeper or owner prove to be incorrect, the registration authority may request the registration certificate in the Verkehrsblatt for submission to it with a period of four weeks. If the ban expires unsuccessfully, the registration of the vehicle ends. The registration authority shall notify the previous keeper or owner of the end of the authorisation.
It is highly recommended to check the buyer's details on the basis of an identity card or passport. The seller remains the owner of the vehicle even after the sale until it has been transferred to a new owner or put out of service by him.
Have the buyer confirm receipt of the documents handed over (e.g. registration certificate Part I (vehicle registration document), registration certificate Part II (vehicle registration document), certificate of technical inspections carried out (HU, AU, possibly also SP) as well as other documents such as installation acceptances, exemptions, etc. in writing.
When selling abroad, you should definitely put the vehicle out of service before selling it so that your owner obligations (motor vehicle liability insurance, motor vehicle tax) are terminated. A later decommissioning is lengthy and expensive because of the fact that the vehicle documents are usually no longer available.
It is also possible for the purchaser to take the vehicle abroad in a way other than in the registered condition (e.g. export license plate, transport vehicle and sometimes even with short-term license plates).
