Re: Fact Sheet #1 - Car Registration and Number Plates

View Post
Sorry if this has already been asked, but I've been through loads of threads and can't get the answer:

I registered with my Gemeinde over a month ago and, as yet, have still not received my permit. I expect to get a B but who knows what will turn up. I have chased the Gemeinde but they said it's out of their hands and that it can take up to two months.

The question is, can I buy a car before the permit turns up? My UK car has to go back in the next couple of weeks and I really need to get a replacement ASAP. From what I can see though, to get the reg plates at the STVA, you need a permit. Does anyone know if there's a way around it?

Thanks for any help
The simplest thing is to let your insurance company and/or car dealer sort it out for you. They are always most willing to do this and know all the procedures whatever your situation.

You might want to get a letter from the Geminde saying your residence permit is in process as it may be requested.
