Registration Plates & Vehicle Ownership

A few questions regarding vehicle and number plate ownership.

Can I identify who the owner of a number palte is easily and where would I go for this information?

Can I identify who the actual owner of a vehicle is and again where would I go for this information?

Most Cantons have this on their official website. Look around on these
websites.

There is also an iPhone app for this (don't have it, don't use it )

Re: Registration Plates & Vehicle Ownership

search the forum or the internet for "eIndex" or "autoindex"
and you can complete a form and opt out.

Old thread - new question ... having identified said owner - does anyone have any experience of buying and transferring a registration plate that someone already owns? I've seen one I fancy

In the canton of Zurich you can only transfer plates between relatives. (see here)

In other cantons (e.g. Graubünden/Grisons) you can transfer them to anyone.

Re: Registration Plates & Vehicle Ownership

Thanks - good find.
But, random rule. Every time I think I'm getting used to this country something makes me realise I'm an auslander.
I'm guessing there is no way around this. Ah well.

Re: Registration Plates & Vehicle Ownership

What has being a foreigner to do with not getting the number plate you fancy?
Especially if someone else has it on his/her car?
