How do I get vehicle registration?
Depending on the location, the location can look very different. While some district offices state that vehicle registrations are currently not possible, others continue to operate at least with restrictions. This is due to the fact that there are no uniform regulations at state or federal level in the area of approval bodies . Each district office decides whether the admissions office is open or not. Therefore, the citizens have no choice but to ask the responsible office.
The offices also often provide information on their website about how vehicle registrations are currently being handled. If the admissions office is in operation, appointments must often be made by phone or online . This is to prevent too many people from being in one room.

On the other hand, it does not pose any insignificant effort for consumers either: an online ID card as well as a reader or a smartphone with a special ID app are required for online approval. In addition, the vehicle registration document and vehicle registration document must have a concealed security code that must be scratched free. Part I of the registration certificate has been doing this since 2015, Part II since 2018.
