VEHICLE REGISTRATION INFORMATION

HISTORICAL LICENSE PLATES

To qualify for historical license plates in Germany a vehicle must be 30 years old or more. Prior to obtaining Historical License plates, a vehicle must be certified by German Government Authorities at TÜV, DEKRA, or other agencies sanctioned by the German Government. The fee for the certification inspection may vary with the type of vehicle. When completed the owner must bring the inspection/certification documents to the local Field Registration Station to order Historical plates. At this time the plates will be ordered and the owner will be issued temporary registration plates pending receipt of the permanent plates. Historical Vehicles will be registered for a period of 12 months from receipt of their temporary plates. In order to renew on a yearly basis, owners will get their vehicle inspected at the military P.O.V. Inspection station up to 75 days prior to expiration to allow sufficient time for difficult repairs and/or ordering of parts. Once a vehicle has been classified as a Historical Vehicle, it will not be required to be re-evaluated by TÜV, DEKRA, or other agencies sanctioned by the German Government in the future unless modifications are made to the vehicle that would change its current status.

If the owner of a registered Historical vehicle sells the vehicle or moves to another community in USAREUR, there is no need for the vehicle to go back to TÜV or DEKRA. If the vehicle was previously registered in the German system, the Green Registration certificate “Zulassungsbescheinigung” indicating "H" license plates also means the vehicle has been certified and accepted by the German authorities. If you have questions please call USAREUR RMV Customer Service: DSN- 542-2021/2022/2023 CIV- 0611-143-542-2021/2022/2023.

Attention Motorcycle Owners!

The requirement for DA Civilians, Civilian Contractors and family members to be in possession of a valid Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Card as a requisite for obtaining a USAREUR Motorcycle License in Germany has been rescinded.

Current requirements are:

1. Applicant must be in possession of a valid Civilian Stateside Driver's License with a motorcycle endorsement or country license with a Motorcycle Endorsement or a country Motorcycle License.

2. Attend the initial Motorcycle Operator's 4 hour Orientation. Applicants that do not have a Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) Operator's license must complete the standard POV training and testing prior to applying for the motorcycle endorsement.

3. Pass a 30 Question written examination.

4. This interim change is now in effect pending the forthcoming update of AER 190-1. Military personnel should check with their local driver's testing station for licensing and training requirements listed in AR 385-10.

  APPOINTING AN AGENT TO OPERATE, SHIP, SELL OR DISPOSE OF YOUR POV:

If you are unable to ship, sell or otherwise dispose of your POV before departing the command, an agent may be appointed on AE Form 190-1AD (Special Power of Attorney to Operate, Register, Sell, or Otherwise Dispose of a Privately Owned Vehicle (POV)). Your local Field Registration Station (FRS) has these forms; upon completion they are only valid for 90 days. This form must be witnessed and dated at the FRS or the local staff judge advocates office, and then can be accepted as agent appointment. A person can only be an agent for one POV at a time and must sign a statement of responsibility, which will legally obligate them to complete the transaction.

A power of attorney is granted when both owner and agent appear together at the FRS and complete AE Form 190-1AD in the presence of the station clerk. The clerk will verify the identities of both the sponsor owner and the agent and ensure both are eligible to register a POV with the RMV. The agent must also be a sponsor and must read and sign AE Form 190-1AF. For military personnel, the agent must be of equal or higher grade than the owner.

Both owner and agent must be present. If under joint or co-ownership, we need authorization from the individual being removed from the registration (power of attorney or notarized statement).

ID card, U.S. Forces Certificate Of License

Registration must have more than 60 days remaining; otherwise mechanical safety inspection is required.

Check or Money Order made payable to "USAREUR Registration Fund" or credit/debit card or credit/debit card.

A waiver may be required as this transaction counts toward the agent’s allotment for limit of POVs.

Our policy is that we only accept powers of attorney between spouses or as mentioned above.

NOTE: Your name must be on the registration as an owner, not additional driver, in order to update any information. A spouse may update information when presenting a valid power of attorney.

  DISPLAYING LICENSE PLATES:

License plates must be attached to the front and the rear of the POV so that both plates are clearly visible. The rear plate must be centered under a lighted license plate mount or placed between lights on either side.

Motorcycles and trailers must display one plate attached to the rear.

Plates must be firmly attached to the POV using bolts, screws, or brackets. Use of string or wire to secure plates is prohibited and will cause the POV to fail the mechanical safety inspection.

Drilling or punching of 2 or 4 holes for attachment is authorized as long as the numbers and letters are not obstructed. Plates may not be covered with plastic or glass, cut, altered, defaced, forged or displayed in any other manner not authorized.

3rd Plate for a bike rack must be firmly attached to the bike rack using bolts, screws or a bracket.

Old license plates or signs may not be attached to the plates. The plates may not be bent to fit the POV. The size of your license plate area is the determining factor whether the long or short plates are suitable for your POV.

  LOST OR STOLEN PLATES OR VEHICLE:

You must immediately report a stolen POV or lost/stolen plate(s) to your nearest MP/SP station. You will be issued an alarm number. Should you need replacement plates, take this form to your local Field Registration Station along with your current registration (and license plate, if any).

POV’s cannot be renewed after this 30-day period and must be registered as non-operational. The fuel card is invalid. Check with your local Field Registration Station for their procedure, as some communities require local and USAG (USAREUR) or MSG (USAFE) approval.

REMINDER: If you need to change your plates, you will need a new insurance confirmation card. Also a new fuel card is required whenever plates are changed.

If your insurance company issues you a new insurance confirmation card, please submit it with the renewal.

  TEMPORARY PLATES:

Temporary plates can only be issued by the community where you are stationed

Initially issued for up to a 30 day period so that your POV may be driven to the inspection point for mechanical safety inspection. Upon passing inspection, the plates are then exchanged for the German style plates. The type of plate (long or short or in combination) for your POV will depend on the size of the area where plates are to be mounted and is determined by the inspection station.

German plates can only be issued by the community where you are stationed.

If temporary registration plates were not returned on time causing the registration to be cancelled ("X" failed to re-register), the customer is responsible to pay for any new registration in order to return the vehicle to an active registration status.

You must return to original place of issue to finalize this transaction as only they have your supporting documents and money.

Temporary plates cannot be extended.

When your POV cannot pass inspection after this 30 day period, it MUST be registered as non-operational. Check with your local community for guidance, as some Army communities require local United States Army Garrison (USAG) approval; and Air Force communities may require Mission Support Group (MSG) approval.

Inspection requirements: A safety inspection will be required if the registration will expire within 60 days, or if the vehicle being transferred is 10 years or older it must be inspected within 30 days prior to transfer. When a POV is less than 10 years old, we do not require a new inspection; the buyer may retain seller’s expiration date provided there is more than 60 days left on seller’s registration.

When a POV passes the inspection, the buyer will get a new one or two-years (if eligible) registration.

TIP: We cannot recognize or acknowledge the transfer, sale or giving of your POV to another ID card holder unless both parties go to the local Field Registration Station (FRS) and formalize that transaction. We strongly advise the seller NOT to cancel insurance on the POV until then. Often the current owner/seller has cancelled their insurance and the buyer then purchases insurance on that same POV thinking they now have coverage because they "own" it. Upon arrival at the local FRS they may discover that the registration has been cancelled as the seller cancelled their insurance. The local FRS will give an insurance cancellation form to seller when the transaction is conducted.
