Buying a car in Germany with a temporary licence plate
Buying a car in Germany and importing it to the Netherlands is bound by rules. For example, if you buy a car in Germany and want to drive it back to the Netherlands, you can request a Kurzzeitkennzeichen. On the day of transport there must be a valid registration number, which can be lead back to the car. The Kurzzeitkennzeichen is a German licence plate with insurance certificate that has a validity of five days and is ideally suited to transport the car from Germany to the Dutch boarder in a legal manner. During the validity period of five days, the car is insured under civil liability.
When buying a car in Germany you can choose to have it transported by Cargo or drive the car to the Netherlands by yourself, for which you can then use the Kurzzeitkenzeichen. But the temporary license plate is only valid in Germany. When entering a car in the Netherlands, the car will have to be provided with a Dutch plate. It is possible to request a one-day badge for the day on which the car will be inspected by the RDW. If you do not arrange a plate, you will have to transport the car from the boarder to its location.
Buying a car in Germany brings a lot work. You can also consider outsourcing the entire process to Cargo International, so you do not have to worry about anything.
