Re: Get license plate / number

Quote:
It gets just a little more complicated if you're buying privately, as explained in MF's links, as you have to take the old grey card to the licensing centre who will issue you with the plates before you can drive it.
Which in all is not really complicated nor time consuming. It can also be done by mail. It is even more easy when you already have plates.

If you get the plates from a dealer you might state if you prefer an even or odd number or if certain digits should not appear. Not guaranteed you get what you wish for, but when you go to get plates you usually can choose from 5 different ones. 5 digit numbers (or less) and special combinations are put up for auction. https://www.auktion.stva.zh.ch/

You properly could even get the plates for a new car yourself. All you need is the fully stamped Form 13.20a and an insurance quote.

PS: Usually you can use only two vehicles on the same plate (Special rules for car dealers and antique collectors).
