When the vehicle’s owner changes, how soon must the vehicle be registered?

Registrations, insurances, licence plates

The vehicle must be registered within 7 days if the vehicle’s owner or holder information changes. Please note that any changes to the owner or holder information of vehicles that have been decommissioned from traffic must also be notified to the register within seven days.

For example, if the owner information changes on Monday, the change of ownership must be notified on Monday of the following week at the latest. If the last possible date is on Saturday or a holiday, you can submit a notification on the following working day at the latest.
