Usually, vehicles have to be assessed by the TÜV every two years so that they can continue to be used in road traffic. The only exception is for new vehicles, which only have to be checked again after three years after first registration. For vehicles that have not been put into operation at all or have not been in operation for a longer period of time, a so-called full report must be drawn up for re-registration.
Requirements for a full report
The full report is in § 21 of the StVZO regulated. Here you will find the requirements for an operating license for individual vehicles. In particular, a full report must be drawn up for vehicles that have been out of service for more than seven years. In addition, a prerequisite for the full report is that the documents for a re-registration are no longer available, such as a certificate of individual approval or a data confirmation. Import vehicles are often affected by these regulations, which therefore require a more detailed examination. If these requirements are met, a full report for the vehicle must be drawn up. For this purpose, the technical condition and traffic safety of the vehicle are checked in full. The test is comparable to the well-known main inspection that used vehicles have to complete every two years. After further additional tests, the expert then records the data for the report, so that part I and part II can be issued. The vehicle can then be put on the market for the first time or again using the full report.
Which vehicles are affected?
Vehicles for which there are no papers at all must be checked with a full certificate before being registered. But even vehicles that have not been registered for a number of years must be fully tested before they can be put back on the road. Furthermore, import vehicles also require a corresponding report if the necessary papers for approval have not yet been created. The inspection of the corresponding vehicles is carried out by an officially appointed expert. The technical condition and traffic safety of the vehicle can also be checked, for example, by TÜV, Dekra or GTÜ.
What is additionally examined for the full report?
It is generally checked whether the vehicle presented complies with the approval regulations. For this purpose, all limit values and rules are used, which were valid at the time of the first registration. It is also checked whether the vehicle has to be converted in some areas or whether one is for some things Exemption must be granted. The viewing angle is directed, for example, at the headlights and the type plates. If not all of the data for the vehicle in question is available, the expert must measure it extensively so that it can be entered in the vehicle registration document. If the vehicle is finally approved, it will receive a main inspection sticker for two years and can subsequently go to the HU without a full report. PS: By the way, there are the so-called classic cars Vintage full certificate. They are more complex and also more expensive than standardized car reports.
the FULL APPROVAL ACCORDING TO §21 STVZO:
- Full appraisals are mandatory for vehicles that have been deregistered for more than 7 years and for which no documents such as a data confirmation, a
Certificate of individual approval or an EC certificate of conformity are available
- Full reports are required for imported vehicles from abroad (does not apply to new or used vehicles with an EEC operating license / EC declaration of conformity) that are already in circulation
- If modifications to the exhaust system, headlights, reflectors or nameplates are necessary, the expert will determine this on site
- used vehicles must undergo an exhaust emission test (AU)
- occasional vehicles from the non-EC area such as the USA or Canada always require a full report
- The technical condition and traffic safety are checked based on the main inspection in accordance with § 29 StVZO, conformity of the vehicle with the approval regulations with regard to the braking system, exhaust gas behavior, noise limits, lighting equipment etc. (the vehicle must comply with the limit values and regulations that were valid at the time of first registration)
- Experts must determine the data for the preparation of the registration certificate part I / part II
