Vehicle: Seasonal license plate

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Seasonal license plates are usually applied for vehicles such as motorcycles, convertibles or motorhomes that are only to be used at certain times of the year. Their owners or keepers can thus save themselves frequent registration and deregistration. Insurance cover and the obligation to pay contributions are suspended outside the operating period. (The operating period is indicated on the right-hand side of the license plate; for example 05/11 = the vehicle may be used from May to November).

When registering the vehicle, you specify once the period (at least two to a maximum of eleven months per year) in which you wish to use the vehicle. Outside of this operating period, the vehicle must be parked on private land.
