Replace vehicle registration document

Due to the current situation, please note the information on the home page of the Citizen's Office.

If your vehicle registration document is lost or stolen, you will need a replacement.

If a vehicle registration document has still been issued for the vehicle, the registration certificate Part I is issued as a replacement. The coexistence of a new registration certificate Part I (previously: vehicle registration document) and an old vehicle registration document is not permitted. The old registration document must be exchanged for the new registration certificate Part II.

Note:
If the lost vehicle registration document is found again after the replacement document has been issued, the recovered document must be handed in to the registration authority immediately.
