The end is approaching - Seasonal license plate for tuning vehicles

Snow and ice, the vehicle paint in one milky layer of road salt dived - for tuning fans the winter is often a dread. If you do not need your tuned baby daily or have a second car, you prefer to leave the car in the garage in winter. This is especially true when a lot of time and money has been invested in the tuning. In the past, it was common practice to deregister tuning cars over the winter, so nowadays the registration with seasonal license plates is the right choice.

Save on insurance and tax

Already since 1997 it is possible in Germany to admit vehicles by means of seasonal markings. With this type of approval, the vehicle is only allowed for a specific and contiguous period of the year, for example, only in the summer months. A cumbersome registration and deregistration of the vehicle is omitted, so that the seasonal approval especially for motorcycles, convertibles and tuned vehicles offers that are driven only in the summer. The approval period must be at least two months and a maximum of eleven months. During the registration-free period, the vehicle may not be moved on the road or parked in public traffic areas or parking lots. Nevertheless, it is insured at this time, for example in case of theft. Incidentally, when it comes to car insurance, there are often savings opportunities in the course of seasonal licensing. In addition, the vehicle tax only accrues for the registration period, no tax is payable for the non-admission period. If you only permit your car with seasonal registration from the beginning of May until the end of October, you will save half of the vehicle tax compared to the year-round registration. Please note that if you register for season tickets, the no-claims discount will only increase if the vehicle is registered for at least six months of the year.

Vehicle needs different license plates

The registration period is noted in the vehicle papers and on the number plates. The season period is appended to the letter and number combination of the number plate, i.e. stamped on the far right. If the previous number plate has no more than seven digits, this is possible without any problems. In this case, the registration offices will even make the license plate in Engschrift accepted, so there are eight positions with the season period. If your number plate already has eight letters or numbers, as is often the case in large cities or metropolitan areas, the registration office must allocate a shorter combination for the seasonal number plate. When switching to seasonal license plates, two new license plates usually have to be made. If you're making a switch anyway 3D Plate plan, then this would be the ideal time. Even 3D license plates, which are made of sturdy plastic instead of thin aluminum sheet, can easily be made as a season license plate.
