Re: New car registration - no number plates yet

Often for a new vehicle the dealer will pick up the plates, once you have insurance.

My steps were as follows:

Step 1, Buy vehicle (sign the dotted line)
Step 2, get insurance. You'll need the vehicle details.
Step 3, Send dealer a copy when you have it. Dealer gets your new plates and tells you to pick it up.
Step 4, Drive vehicle off the lot and try and enjoy the brand new car as it instantly drops 10% in value.

I think if you don't want the dealer to do it you can contact the Strassenverkehrsamt and they'll mail you the plates and the grey card.

*Or follow the advice of all of the quicker posters above
