The intention of targeted focus checks and monitoring of the tuning scene by police authorities and city administration, which are carried out at popular meeting points for tuning and car enthusiasts as well as in road traffic, is to test technical modifications on tuned vehicles. If the technical changes made violate the stipulated regulations of the StVZO as well as the FZV (Vehicle Registration Regulation), the responsible car owner will receive a report or a fine, depending on the respective offense.
Expiry of the operating license
Serious violations in this regard are usually linked to the expiry of the operating license. Cars that do not meet the guidelines of the compulsory insurance law after the technical changes in practice are often towed by the authorities directly temporarily shut them down. Anyone who drives their vehicle in accordance with the law in accordance with the STVZO (Road Traffic Licensing Regulations) and the FZV (Vehicle registration regulation) would like to tune, you should therefore have the necessary expertise to carry out the modifications or put your piece of jewelery into the hands of a knowledgeable, highly qualified professional. Basically, the following applies: Vehicle conversions that contradict the legal requirements defined by the StVZO and FZV endanger general road safety and are accompanied by sanctions by the responsible authorities.
Technical modifications must be transparently legitimized by an expert
In order to transparently substantiate the fact that the technical modifications do not actually contradict the legal guidelines of the FZV and StVZO, most of the changes are official Examination Organizations to be examined. If the work carried out complies with the law, the examiners note a check digit note which they enter in the approval certificate. According to Section 19 (2) STVZO, numerous technical modifications to vehicles are officially not permitted. If the vehicle owner does not have his vehicle officially checked, although the tuning measures carried out endanger general road safety or the vehicle class changes following the work, this justifies the withdrawal of the operating license. The same applies if the car owner has not subjected his tuned vehicle to an inspection, even though the technical changes are linked to negative effects on noise levels or noise emissions and pollutant emissions. Anyone who does not check components subject to acceptance and who have entered them in the approval documents also risks losing their operating license.
Section 19 (3) of the StVZO regulates moving in from the vehicle
According to Section 19 (3) StVZO, authorities may actually move the car in if the noise emissions from the vehicle cannot be tolerated. TÜV, DEKRA, KÜS, selected tuning workshops and certified vehicle experts carry out vehicle tests and issue test number notes. Tuning enthusiasts who neglect or fail to have an official inspection of their car in the wake of technical changes that are officially permitted are also at risk of having their operating license withdrawn. The acceptance and legitimation by experts therefore has absolute priority for tuning fans.
ABE or parts certificate
According to the FZV and StVZO, changes to rims, spoilers, windows, the lighting system and tires are generally classified as subject to acceptance. According to the guidelines of the StVZO, vehicles may only be equipped with components that comply with the official approval requirements. New auto parts must always match the information in the associated vehicle registration document. In extreme cases, an improper selection of tires / rims often leads to the loss of the operating permit. Tuning enthusiasts therefore ideally buy components exclusively on the German market and with them Teilegutachten or a ABE. In this way, you ensure that the elements comply with the building regulations that apply in Germany and that they can be installed legally.
Of course that had not been the case.
