Loss of Number Plates/Theft​


If one or both number plates are lost, especially if the number plates have been stolen, one should report this immediately. First, report the loss of your number plate(s) to the police.

After reporting the loss, you will be issued new number plates and the old ones will be blocked.

  • A signed application for the replacement of number plates 

  • Vehicle Registration (Germ. Fahrzeugschein)/registration certificate part I 

  • The Title of Ownership (Germ. Fahrzeugbrief)/registration certificate part II

  • If necessary, the existing number plates
