What kind of license plates do I need?

In accordance with German regulations, vehicles are categorized using various types of license plates, including general plates, red plates, seasonal and short-term plates, classic car plates, export and interchangeable plates, and insurance plates.

Specialized plates are also allocated for distinct vehicle categories, such as electric vehicles and official vehicles of public authorities. The purpose of license plates is to classify and differentiate vehicles.

Number Plates Structure

KM NR 123

German number plates are composed of two segments. The distinguishing marks comprise one to three letters, while the identification number consists of one or two letters and up to four digits. The combination results in a maximum of eight characters, with season codes limited to a maximum of seven. Positioned between the two sets of numbers are the test badges and the seal of the approval authority.

The distinguishing marks
The distinguishing marks on German number plates consist of one, two, or three letters. In the case of a "normal" vehicle, these letters represent the administrative district of the registration authority where the vehicle is regularly located. Certain combinations also signify vehicles associated with federal and state organizations, the federal police, THW, Bundeswehr, the Diplomatic Corps, as well as other administrations and privileged international organizations. The Federal Ministry of Transport is responsible for determining or altering the distinguishing marks for administrative districts, ensuring that the combinations adhere to common decency standards.
Inspection stickers on the license plate
Following the distinguishing marks on the rear license plate is a round sticker known as the TÜV sticker. This sticker signifies the deadline for the next general inspection, often colloquially referred to as the TÜV. The stickers are designed to be destroyed upon removal, enhancing their resistance to falsification. In 1974, authorities expanded the color scheme from four to six colors. This color rotation, changing annually, repeats every six years, facilitating easy identification of sticker expiration from a distance. Resembling a clock, the circular sticker is divided into twelve black segments, each representing a month. The due date for the inspection can be deciphered based on the position of the segments within the circle.
Stamp stickers for the licensing authorities
Beneath the inspection sticker, there is a label from the registration authority featuring the official seal of the corresponding city or district. Concurrent with the introduction of Euro license plates, the stamp stickers underwent a transformation. Formerly grey or white, they now exhibit a larger and multi-colored design. This sticker prominently displays the coat of arms and the name of the federal state or Free State where the vehicle is registered, along with the name of the registration office.

Reserve your license plate?

The German standard license plate allows for personalized combinations by combining the distinguishing sign and the identification number. The distinguishing sign, also known as the location abbreviation, indicates the registration district and can consist of up to three letters. Following the distinguishing sign, the identification number provides room for individualized design. It includes up to two letters (excluding umlauts) and up to four digits, with no zero permitted in the first position. The entire license plate, including the distinguishing sign, must not exceed a total of eight characters.
