To register a car that has been purchased in Germany it is necessary to take a few documents to the Düsseldorf department of transportation (Strassenverkehrsamt). Firstly the passport of the person to whom the vehicle is being registered, the vehicle registration certificate (Zulassungsbescheinigung), electronic insurance number and direct debit authorisation for the periodical tax withdrawal are necessary.
Also needed are new number plates if the car was purchased in a different region and also the previous car registration papers, technical and exhaust qualifications if the car has been previously registered.
For motor vehicles from abroad with differing specifications some technical alterations may be required.
