Many Ukrainian cars need soon German numbers

Refugees from Ukraine who have brought their car with them must have it registered after one year. It then receives a German registration and a German license plate. A special regulation of the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV) had allowed a transition period of one year in spring 2022. So anyone who came to Germany in May of last year must now take care of registering their vehicle. It is possible, however, that there will be a new decision by the federal-state technical committee in May. Bavaria and also some other states – but not Baden-Württemberg – have already extended the deadline.
What documents are needed for registration can be found on the homepage of the district office: In addition to proof of liability insurance, the original foreign registration certificate is required. Furthermore, the vehicles must have a valid TÜV stamp. However, they do not need a full expert opinion.
A re-registration costs around 40 euros, and anyone who wants a personalized license plate has to pay extra. In addition, another 40 euros are due for the license plates. If vehicle data were not fully retrievable, additional fees could still be incurred, the authority informs.
