Motor vehicle: Registration certificate part I - Changes to the holder details

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The registration authority must be informed immediately of any changes to the owner's details (personal changes such as a change of name due to marriage, divorce or change of address).

The vehicle keeper is obliged to notify the authority; if he is not also the owner, he is also obliged to do so.

The change of name is entered both in the registration certificate part I (ZB I, formerly: vehicle registration certificate) and in the registration certificate part II (ZB II, formerly vehicle registration document). If a vehicle registration certificate and a vehicle registration document are still available, these are exchanged for the ZB I and ZB II.

If only the address changes within the registration district, the ZB II does not have to be presented. In these cases, either a new ZB I is issued or a corresponding sticker is affixed to the previous ZB I.

If you have purchased or leased your vehicle on credit and the financing bank or lessor has retained the vehicle registration document / ZB II as security, please contact them so that they can submit the document to the registration authority for amendment and as proof of authorization to dispose of the vehicle.


Who should I contact?

To the district or district-free city (registration authority). Responsibility 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 branch office; this also applies to a general partnership, limited partnership or for traders and self-employed persons with a fixed place of business.

In some districts, changes of address due to a move within the registration district are also carried out by the responsible municipal, district or city administrations (residents' registration office). Ask there if necessary.

Which documents are required?
  • ZB I (formerly: vehicle registration certificate),
  • ZB II (formerly: vehicle registration document) when changing the registration district,
  • for companies, additionally business registration or extract from the commercial register,
  • identity card or
    Passport with registration certificate from the residents' registration office or,
    for foreign citizens, foreign identity card and registration certificate from the residents' registration office.

If you authorize a third party to enter the change, they will need a written power of attorney from you. They must also present a copy of your identity document to the registration office. The third party must have the relevant identity document with them to prove their identity.

What are the fees?

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

Legal basis

Fee regulations for road traffic measures (GebOSt).

What else should I know?

The registration authority automatically forwards the change notification to the main customs offices for consideration in the vehicle tax.
