You would like to decommission a vehicle. Required documents:

  • License plate number
  • Proof of disposal, if applicable


Important information on taking a vehicle out of service With the introduction of the new vehicle registration ordinance on 01.03.2007, the distinction between temporary immobilization and final deletion was abandoned. It was replaced by the decommissioning. As a result, the license plate can be reissued immediately after a vehicle has been taken out of service. However, the owner has the option of reserving this license plate in his or her name again for the re-registration of the same vehicle on the day of decommissioning at the license plate authority.

You can also take the vehicle out of service in the Citizen Service Portal .
