You must register your car at a vehicle registration office. To do this, you will need your vehicle registration document and your motor vehicle insurance policy. If you are bringing your car from abroad, inform yourself if you need any other documents at the registration office.
In addition to registration, every car in Germany must pass the general inspection every two years. The TÜV (Technical Inspection Association) checks the technical safety and emission levels of the car. This inspection is liable to costs.
