Selling LU car in Geneva

Hi,

I've recently moved from Luzern and am still waiting an appointment to register in Geneva. In the meantime, I've learned that we are moving again - this time to Singapore! We need to sell our car, but we still have our Luzern plates. Does anybody know if this will cause a problem for us?

Many thanks in advance for any advice.

Plates are mostly personal thus you sell a car most of the time without them.

I would say the plates have to be deregistered upon sale and sent back to Luzern.

When you sell the car, or before, deregister the car (i.e. hand in the plates) at your local DMV, doesn't matter which canton. They will send the back to LU.

Re: Selling LU car in Geneva

Thank you all for your help.

We have sold the car now privately. The new owner will hand in our Luzern plates when registering for his new Geneva ones. Handing the plates in will cancel our insurance and tax also.

Thanks again!
