Due to nationwide regulations, the online portal for digital vehicle registrations (iKfz) had to be deactivated on January 1, 2024. The vehicle registration office does not currently offer online services. Work is currently underway to resume digital services. In the meantime, the analog services of the vehicle registration office are available to you. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Would you like to apply for a one-day registration? Find out more here.

From 01.09.2023 the day registration of a vehicle is possible. Upon application, the initial registration of a vehicle subject to registration may also take place for the duration of exclusively the day on which the initial registration becomes effective (day registration). In the case of a day registration, no stamping of the license plates is required. The daily registration can be applied for online via the "internet-based vehicle registration". The application can be started by clicking on "online daily registration" (see Further information "Online Service").

Further information on "internet-based vehicle registration" is available on the website of the Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport (see "i Where can I find out more?").
