To register a car in Neuss that has been purchased in Germany it is necessary to take a few documents to the local 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.
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.
Neuss belongs to a larger administrative region hence some official business needs to be instigated in the offices of the Rhine County Neuss (Rhein-Kreis Neuss). This is the case when registering a vehicle.
