After the committee checks your documents and approves them, the car owner is given the following:
- Plate with a car number
- Pass for MOT test
- Two copies of the registration certificate that contains information about the owner and car technical data.
- Vehicle approval certificate that gives the right to drive this car in Austria
Instead of having a second paper copy of a registration certificate, the car owner can now get a compact and convenient plastic card containing a chip which costs EUR 22 and can be obtained in 2 weeks after the registration. After the card is ready, it will be sent to you by post.License plates
in Austria are alphanumeric. There are 1-2 letters denoting the city where the car is registered, the heraldic emblem of the federal state and a sequence of 3-6 letters and numbers. Letter Q is never used on Austrian license plates.
The car number in Austria is connected with the place of residence of the owner. If the owner of the car moves from one city to another even if they are in the same federal state, they must register a car again. The only exception to this rule is Vienna, so even if you move between its districts, there is no need to change the car number.
